"An initial inquiry regarding the initiation of a lodge in Bombay (present-day Mumbai) in 1895 was sent to B’nai B’rith leader Simon Wolf from Moses Samson, head assistant in the Commissary General’s Office in Poonah, India. When cholera and bubonic plague crippled the city three years later, B’nai B’rith contributed to the relief of victims and needs of the poor and helped to establish Bene Israel Plague Hospital, co-founded by the widow of philanthropist Baron de Hirsch and the Paris branch of the Rothschild family."]
