B'nai B'rith International and the Center for Human Rights and Public Policy have a long history of advocacy on issues of importance to the Jewish people. Its leaders are quickly recognized in the halls of Congress and the organization's views are frequently sought out on a variety of topics.
[Critics have said consistently that the Israelis have corrupted the U.S. Congress very nicely through money and media threats, enough to intrude Israel's way into their halls any time Israelis want to be there.]
Historically, B'nai B'rith has advanced a plethora of issues on Capitol Hill. The September 2000 explosion of daily terrorism in and around Israel and the horrific attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a year later, have provided a greater focus for the B'nai B'rith International agenda and lobbying effort.
[Critics have said consistently that the Israelis are only interested in Israel and what Israel can make the USA do for Israel even though it is not in the best interests of the U.S. people.] top of page
Key Issues and Activities:
Maintaining ironclad relations between the United States Congress and Israel. [Critics have said consistently that the Israel has no ironclad relations with anyone. Israel spies on the U.S.A. Israel cares only about Israel no matter how much it hurts the U.S. people. This statement was just doublespeak.]
Providing support to allies of the United States and Israel. [Critics have said consistently that the Israel supports allies of the U.S. only if it benefits Israel.]
Working to ensure that our support for civil liberties is in accord with the necessity for strong antiterrorism laws. [Critics have said consistently that the Israel supports torture as practiced in Israel is okay also in U.S. prisons.]
Endorsing the expansion of hate crimes legislation. [Critics have said consistently that Israelis hate white people and Arabs. Critics, in addition, have said consistently that the Israelis feel that this sort of hate is all right and is NOT to be punished ever.] top of page
Finding ways to lessen Western dependence on Persian Gulf energy. [Critics have said consistently that this is another way of saying, Israel hates Arabs enough to isolate them and ruin their economy. Critics have said consistently that the Israelis seem to feel that anything that hurts an Arab, Israel wants.]
Supporting budget increases in prostate cancer research. [No comment.]
Promoting free trade legislation for Latin America. [Critics have said consistently that some Israeli businesses want to open factories in Latin America to further Zionist profits from exporting of U.S. jobs while reselling those foreign produced goods back to Americans who have no jobs.]
Testimony and Briefings
Over the past few years B'nai B'rith International officials have testified before Congress on issues ranging from Israel's treatment at the United Nations [According to some critics, forcing the U.S. to make itself look foolish by vetoing bonafide U.N. objections to Israeli terror acts] to the resurgence of global antiterrorism [According to some critics, as long as Israel's state terrorism is allowed unabated and uninterrupted and uncriticized] to digital privacy issues [According to some critics, this is a fantastic lie since Israel is the threat as the world's major intruder into digital privacy areas and always will be]. Similarly, the organization briefs senators, representatives, and their staffs in groups and one-on-one on pending issues of concern. [Critics have said consistently that the Israelis pull the wool over the eyes of the Congress with Israeli lies under the banner of "Mossad Intelligence Reports" and "expert testimony by America's Jewish friends, many of which have proven to be filled with total prefabricated lies.] top of page

Holocaust Restitution, Education and Remembrance1
B'nai B'rith has been active in the effort to achieve justice for Holocaust survivors and their families,1 especially in the area of restitution and compensation. BBI is a founding member of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, and has been represented in negotiations with several Central and Eastern European countries on restitution matters.1 B'nai B'rith has a strong interest not only as a Jewish organization, but also as an organization which had a broad membership in many of these countries before World War II and the Holocaust.1
B'nai B'rith has also been involved in the issue of Holocaust education, publishing books and teaching materials, and sponsoring symposia on the subject for teachers in the Lithuanian public schools.1
1. Some critics complain, B'nai B'rith seems only interested in monetary restitution by the Jews themselves for the original and far more massive and brutal holocaust of the 65 million USSR Christians killed by Jews, 1919-1940.

Who Are We?
With on-the-ground members and supporters in more than 50 countries, we are, in a real sense, the body and soul of the Jewish world. [racist statement] From Argentina to Slovakia, from Austria to Singapore, from Australia to Israel, B’nai B’rith is a synonym for organized Jewry. [racist statement] At the B’nai B’rith Center for Human Rights and Public Policy (CHRPP), we carry the banner of the oldest Jewish organization in the world and its proud record of promoting and protecting human rights, confronting all forms of discrimination and bigotry, and fighting for the interests of Jewish communities wherever they exist. [racist statement]
What concerns us?
Anything that has a direct or indirect impact on Jewish life and security, but particularly… [racist statement]
- The security and welfare of Israel [racist statement]
- Rising Islamic militancy [racist statement]
- Resurgent anti-Semitism [racist statement]
- Jewish renewal in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union The security and welfare of Jewish communities worldwide, with special focus on the Western Hemisphere Defending Human Rights worldwide [racist statement]
[Note: All of the above statements are mostly for Jews, not others, with one minor exception in order to tone down its utterly racist focus. This nearly singular focus on Jews is the very definition of racism.]
THE RIPPLE EFFECT:
INTERFAITH FAMILIES SPEAK OUT
Insights of Interfaith Families,
Their Needs and How They Might Be Better
Served by the Organized Jewish Community
by Rela Mintz Geffen & Egon Mayer
The widespread and increasing incidence of marriage between Jews and non-Jews has created an unprecedented challenge for Jewish communal institutions as well as for Jewish families: how to be maximally inclusive of people who are often one’s own children and grandchildren, and simultaneously, to remain faithful to time-honored standards of Jewish group membership. top of page
Individual Jewish families naturally struggle with that question in the private domain, continually testing and revising the limits of etiquette pertaining to life cycle and holiday celebrations with members of their nearest and dearest kinfolk who are not Jewish. At the same time, Jewish membership organizations grapple with how to extend a spirit of welcome and appropriate services to those of their members’ families who may not be Jewish while they avoid violating core values of their organizations and normative expectations of their faithful members.
For major Jewish organizations to play a leadership role in fostering the Jewish continuity of their members, including those who are themselves intermarried or who may have intermarried children or grandchildren, they must demonstrate both an appreciation of the needs of the populations they wish to serve as well as the capacity to marshall their internal resources to respond effectively to those needs.
Until now, most major Jewish organizations have responded to the challenges of intermarriage by debating whether or not to accept for full organizational membership those non-Jews who are the spouses or children of Jewish members. Apart from the dangers of polarizing an organization and becoming a source of dissatisfaction to significant segments of the membership, such an approach fails to address the actual family-life concerns of the people in question. Therefore, in whichever way the issues of membership are resolved, the organization remains ill equipped to serve intermarrieds and their families.
Extensive interviews and survey research, as well as impressionistic accounts of Jewish families who have experienced intermarriage, suggest that there is considerable need for a variety of "outreach" services, including: information and guidance for parents whose adult children have intermarried to help them develop more effective ways of communicating with their children, in-laws and grandchildren; information and guidance for couples in mixed marriages, at various stages of the life cycle, to help them deal more effectively with the emotional and interpersonal tensions inherent in multi-cultural family life, and also to provide them with easily accessible opportunities for Jewish acculturation; training for various types of service providers in Jewish summer camps, youth groups, schools and synagogues so as to enable them to serve the intermarried population more effectively; and guidance to Jewish communal organizations on the marketing of those existing programs that would be most suitable for the intermarried population. In an effort to explore how national Jewish organizations might more effectively serve the needs of interfaith families, and simultaneously make themselves an entry point to the community for these families, the Center for Jewish Identity of B'nai B'rith International, in cooperation with the Jewish Outreach Institute, undertook the sponsorship of a series of focus group interviews in several communities throughout the United States. The basic goals of the research project were to explore four broad questions: top of page
and finally, based on their answers to these four questions, we explored what the Jewish community might do to be both of service and more attractive to interfaith families. This report summarizes the highlights of those dialogues and offers a series of recommendations that Jewish communal institutions should consider if they seek to reach and touch the lives of mixed-marriage couples, their parents and their children. top of pageHow intermarried couples have been affected by the experience of being in a mixed-religion marriage/family;
How their parents have responded to them and their grandchildren;
What the impact has been on the extended families of the intermarried;
From their perspective, how the organized Jewish community has responded to them and their children;
We would greatly appreciate your assistance with this project. We understand the nomination form is quite detailed and will require a substantial amount of time, but the benefits of the information given will be immeasurable. To show our gratitude for the time spent, your name and /or your organization’s name will be acknowledged in the guide for being a contributor; early responses (those forms received before September 15, 1997) will be rewarded with a one year subscription to Moment magazine. You will of course receive a complimentary copy of the Best Jewish Communities guide when it is completed.
The criteria used to evaluate the communities will include:
The criteria to be used have partially been based on the results of a survey sent out to 500 young Jewish singles, couples and families around the country. Respondents answered questions such as, "What activities do you look for in your community?" and "If you could change your community, what would you change?" Additionally, "Best Cities" publications such as Money Magazine and The Best Cities Almanac, which rate cities according to the quality of employment, housing and culture, were consulted. Lastly, we reviewed the relevant sociological literature, such as Sidney and Alice Goldstein’s Jews on the Move, in order to determine our areas of focus.Cohesiveness within the community (i.e. positive feelings of inclusion, communication between different Jewish organizations, sense of pride)
Availability of Jewish institutions (i.e. JCC’s, Federations, Jewish Family Services, local chapters of Jewish organizations)
Support for Jewish spiritual life (i.e. variety of synagogues/havurot, congregations that are welcoming to new-comers)
Availability of Jewish education (i.e. day schools, religious schools, universities, youth groups, summer camps, retreat centers, adult education)
Availability of Jewish support services (i.e. kosher supermarkets and restaurants, bookstores, senior housing) top of page
The relative cost of living Jewishly (i.e. cost of membership for JCC’s, Federations, Jewish education support services)
In order for the results to be accurate, we need as much information from your Jewish community as possible. Therefore, in addition to the completed community nomination form, please attach:
We would like to include as many Jewish communities in the country as possible and we can not do this without your help. Please print out the information located on the B’nai B’rith Center for Jewish Identity "Best" Jewish Community Nomination Form and send it with the aforementioned community material to:local Jewish community magazine and/or newspapers

In 1995 the World Center was designated by B'nai B'rith as the coordinator of its delegation to WZO/JAFI. In this capacity the World Center maintains contact with WZO/JAFI officials and departments, represents the organization at various meetings and files reports on developments at the national institutions. Most recently, the World Center reported extensively on monumental decisions taken at the October-November 1995 meetings of the Jewish Agency Board of Governors to transfer its Youth Aliya project to the Israeli government and to shrink its budget and responsibilities. The World Center has also closely followed developments regarding the reorganization of the World Zionist Organization. top of page

INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE AGAINST ANTI-SEMITIC TERRORISM
The B'nai B'rith
Center for Public Policy
December 1997In the years since the two explosions in Buenos Aires which destroyed the Israeli Embassy and the AMIA Jewish community center, B'nai B'rith and other Jewish organizations worldwide have pushed their governments to include the issue of these unsolved bombings in bilateral discussions with Argentina. During his recent South American visit, President Clinton not only raised this issue with Argentine President Carlos Saul Menem, but he also met with Jewish leaders and the families of victims of the bombings. He wanted to express support and solidarity for those affected by these tragedies as well as the continued commitment of the United States to fight international terrorism and see that the perpetrators of these acts are brought to justice. top of page
These two anti-Semitic attacks, one in 1992 and the other in 1994, claimed the lives of over one hundred people and injured several hundred others. Though both attacks were on Jewish targets, the victims included Jews and non-Jews alike. Both investigations are mired in difficulties, and the Jewish community often expresses its doubts that the government has the political will to find the culprits and bring them to justice.
President Clinton's visit to South America, the first of his presidency, provided an opportunity to exert international pressure on the government of Argentina. The President was visiting Venezuela, Brazil, and Argentina to promote issues such as free trade, environmental cooperation, and the continued democratization of the region. Within this context, he discussed the United States' desire that these terrible crimes be solved with President Menem. Furthermore, he pledged to provide greater cooperation and sharing of information by American intelligence and police agencies as has been requested by the Argentine government.
Following his meeting with President Menem, President Clinton met with leaders of the Argentine Jewish community and family members of the victims to discuss the issue. President Clinton, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and five legislators, expressed the solidarity of the American people with the victims of the bombings, insisting on the need to complete the investigations and continue the fight against international terrorism. He was familiar with several aspects of the case and related regional security issues such as activities across the border in Paraguay as well as the name of the investigating judge and his requests for information from the FBI. He then repeated his promise to see that Argentine investigators receive the information they need from American agencies.
Jaime Kopec, President of B'nai B'rith in Argentina, was present at the meeting and expressed his thanks to the government of the United States for the help and support that the American Embassy has provided in the investigations so far. The leaders of AMIA and DAIA, the other major Jewish organizations in Argentina, were also present and expressed their thanks to President Clinton for the strong American stance against international terrorism and reiterated their desire that these investigations be concluded. The family members of the victims agreed with these sentiments, and added that the lack of resolution of these crimes brings the possibility of a third bombing.
Both the meeting with the Jewish community and President Clinton's attention to the issue demonstrated to President Menem the importance of these investigations to the United States and the world community. Only by continuing to highlight this issue will the Jewish community ensure that the Argentine government receives international pressure to solve these bombings.
