White Shrine of Jerusalem
Founded in 1894, the Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem’s purpose is three-fold, Spiritual, Charitable and Fraternal bringing together Master Masons and their female relatives of high moral and social character to share their desire to spread the Christian Gospel, and assist the less fortunate and create enjoyable experiences for themselves.
The term “white” refers to the purity of the life of Jesus Christ and nothing to do with race or the racial makeup of the membership. Neither is it connected to the Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (AAONMS) to which some Master Masons (Shriners) belong. The Supreme Shrine is the governing body for this International organization.
