The Lodge was founded in April 1926 following a meeting of a small group of women with the Executive of the B'nai B'rith Dr. Moses Gaster Lodge, who suggusted that Manchester should follow the example of London and form a Women's Lodge of B'nai B'rith to help the Jewish widowed and orphaned, sick and persecuted. It thus became the second Women's Lodge in England. It worked in co-operation with the Committee for the Jewish Holiday Home for Mothers and Babies.
