BB Has Exhibit
on Jewish History

Brith is taking visitors to
the nation's capital on a
tour of American Jewish
history. It is doing so in a re-
modeled museum that cov-
ers most of the main floor of
the Bnai Brith Building.
Beginning with the first
landing of Jewish colonists
at New Amsterdam in 1654
and winding through more
than three centuries of Jew-
ish achievements and prog-
ress in politics, industry and
labor, science, the arts and
education, the historical
journey at the Bnai Brith
Klutznick Museum is made
in an American Bicenten-

500 original and facsimile
documents, letters, por-
traits, newspapers, photo-
graphs and other memora-

Great Britain, the manda-

moving the "protective" role
of external powers, decided
to maintain the autonomous

religious communities in
matters of personal status.
With the establishment of
the state of Israel in 1948,
there was some considera-
tion of annulling the pre-
existing role of the religious
communities over their ad-

countered stiff opposition
from the Moslem and Chris-
