The Independent Order of B’nai B’rith, founded in 1843, is the oldest continually operating Jewish service organization in the world, with lodges and chapters worldwide. The first San Diego lodge, Lasker Lodge #370, was founded in 1887. From that original lodge came the Weinberger Lodge, the North Shores Lodge (later renamed the Breitbard Lodge), and several others. The Weinberger and Breitbard later merged to form the Weinberger Breitbard Lodge.
