Welcome to the B'nai B'rith Europe website

L'Shanah Tovah Tikatevu

ralphhRosh Hashana 5774 Message from Ralph Hofmann,
President of B'nai B'rith Europe

Dear Sisters, Dear Brothers

We have once again arrived at that point in the year when we need to ask ourselves what good deeds we have fulfilled in keeping with the objectives of our order and what steps we have taken to remember those Sisters and Brothers who have passed away.

As many of you are certainly aware, the entire B'nai B'rith family mourns the recent passing of our dear Brother Joseph H. Domberger S'L, Honorary President of BB Europe. His work of rebuilding B'nai B'rith in Europe was without equal. All who knew him and worked closely with him will miss his advice and his amazing gift of being able to find a peaceful solution to the most difficult problem. May Joe and his beloved wife Jacqueline rest in peace.

On behalf of my colleagues of the B'nai B'rith Europe Executive Committee I thank you for the work which you are doing in your Lodge, a decisive contribution to maintaining our beloved B'nai B'rith active and alive.
