What is Freemasonry?
Freemasonry is a fraternal organization, where men can regularly come together to enjoy each other’s company. We are known for making good men better and encourage our members to improve themselves intellectually and spiritually, all in a fun and fulfilling environment.
Although, Freemasonry has many influences, we can trace our origins to the medieval stone masons, who at the time were among the few capable of producing great works through their use of mathematics, physics and geometry. We use the tools of these craftsmen today as symbols to teach moral lessons. You may already be familiar with the Square and Compasses that can be seen over the threshold of Masonic Buildings in towns throughout New Jersey.
As a freemason, you will not only make new friends in your own community, but should you have the opportunity to travel, you will have friends ready to welcome you in Lodges thoughout the state, the country and the world.
How to find out more?
The best way to learn more about Freemasonry is to get to know some Freemasons in your community.
If you click on the Lodge Locator tab on the main menu you can find the lodges near where you live or where you work in New Jersey.
You will then be able to find the contact information and can explore these Lodges at your convenience.
You can then call or email one of the Lodges in your area and make an appointment to drop in to meet some of the Lodge members.
There should be plenty of opportunities for you to get together either before or after their regular meetings, at one of their fundraisers, an open house, or some other event they may have planned.
