B'nai B'rith was founded in the United States of America in 1843 and is the oldest Jewish fraternal organisation. It is open to all Jews whatever their religious background and affiliation. It operates in over fifty countries and has its headquarters in Washington DC. The organisation has consultative status to the United Nations. In Great Britain and Ireland, which form District 15 of the organisation, the B'nai B'rith runs fraternal, service, cultural and social activities, by way of a system of lodges, as well as working with the young and students through the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation and its youth organisation, Aleph Zadik Aleph; and the elderly, through the B'nai B'rith Housing Society.
