White Shrine of Jerusalem

White Shrine of Jerusalem,logoThe White Shrine is a not-for-profit body organized under a charter of incorporation dated October 23, 1894, and recorded in the office of Recorder of the State of Illinois on June 18, 1895. It is an international organization with Shrines throughout the United States and Canada.

Membership in the Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem consists of ladies who have a relationship through birth, marriage or legal adoption to a Master Mason in good standing or who was in good standing at the time of his death in some regular Masonic Lodge, as well as members either active for three years or majority of the International Order of Rainbow for Girls or Job’s Daughters International who have attained the age of eighteen (18) years of age. Petitions for membership, based on Rainbow or Job’s Daughters membership, shall include a recommendation signed by a Master Mason in Good Standing

The term “White” is not a racial delineation, but rather refers to the purity of the life of Jesus Christ. Neither is this body connected to the Ancient Arabic Order of the Mystic Noble Shrine (AAOMNS) to which some Master Masons (Shriners) belong.

The aim of the White Shrine is to bring together men and women of high moral and social character to share their desire to spread the Gospel, aid and assist those less fortunate, and create enjoyable experiences for themselves. Its three principal areas of character building are: Spirituality, Charity, and Fraternity

To join, one may obtain a petition from a friend or acquaintance or the Worthy Scribe of a Subordinate Shrine.

  5. I would like to join the White Shrine. My parents were members in San Jose, California, but I don’t know which chapter. My father was a member of the Masonic Lodge in Del City Oklahoma. He was in good standing at his death in 2003. I have no proof I will have to contact his lodge. My brother took all my parents belongings when they died.

  6. Your information is misleading. WSJ consists of both men and women and in our area the attendance is pretty equal. It is not a woman’s masonic organization in any way.
