Leo Baeck Institute New York is one of three highly independent branches of LBI International, which includes Institutes in Jerusalem and London, as well as a circle of scholars in Germany. Internationally, it is guided by officers in the United States, England and Israel, and its financial affairs are managed from an office in Frankfurt with the assistance of a German circle of friends and supporters. Its resources include libraries, archives, and works of art. Its activities, conducted primarily by its individual branches, include research, publications, scholarly conferences, and lectures.
The international LBI undertakes and coordinates collective activities as well as representing the LBI to agencies of the German government. The international officers are Michael A. Meyer, President (email); Arnold Paucker, Vice President (email); and Yitzhak Steiner, Treasurer (email).
LBI New York operates a research branch in Germany at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
