B’nai B’rith International: Advocating for Seniors and Creating Affordable Homes
B’nai B’rith International is one of the most staunch supporters of senior issues, fighting for proper health care and creating safe, affordable, low-income housing for those in need.
B’nai B’rith International, the global voice of the Jewish community, is the most widely known Jewish humanitarian, human rights, and advocacy organization. Since 1843, BBI has worked for Jewish unity, security, continuity, and tolerance. BBI’s reach extends to more than 50 countries around the world.
Today B’nai B’rith International is a national and global leader in the fight against anti-Semitism and anti-Israel bias; provides senior housing and advocacy on issues of vital concern to seniors and their families; helps communities in crisis; and promotes Jewish identity through cultural activities.
The work of B’nai B’rith International is focused in its centers. These centers provide the framework for intensive study of issues and thoughtful responses through the combined efforts of dedicated volunteer leaders and professional staff.
The Center for Senior Services (CSS) provides the tangible — housing and practical information on aging — and the intangible — advocacy and national leadership — on issues affecting Jewish seniors. BBI is the largest national Jewish sponsor of senior housing in the United States and operates nearly 50 fixed-income and market-rate housing facilities worldwide. BBI brings programs and services to seniors and gives them the opportunity to take control of their own futures. Through a steady flow of information on topics as far-ranging as Medicare Part D and aging safely in place to national and international advocacy on vital issues such as income protection and stem cell research, BBI presents a concerned voice for all seniors.
