Bernoulli Numbers

I wish to compute several Bernoulli numbers, say B0 through B20.  The Bernoulli numbers are defined recursively by

B0 = 1, and Solve[Sum[Binomial[n,k]*Bk,{k,0,n-1}]==0,Bn-1] for n > 1

I am trying to compute these numbers in some type of loop, and display them in a table.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
