Scottish Rite Feast of Tishri

  • Scottish Rite Masonic Center 332 Centennial Mall South Lincoln, NE, 68508 United States (map)

The origin of The Feast of Tishri is described in the book of Leviticus where it is said that the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying that on the fifteenth day of the month of Tishri of the Hebrew civil calendar, "ye shall have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord." The Feast of Tishri is the Hebrew equivalent of Thanksgiving or Harvest festival. The origins and significance of the Feast of Tishri make it the most Scottish Rite of festivals.

No other occasion epitomizes the character and purpose of the Feast of Tishri more wholly than the dedication of King Solomon’s Temple. The rich legendry of the Temple’s dedication, celebrated during the Feast of Tishri, is an essential part of the Fourteenth Degree.

By observing the Feast of Tishri, Scottish Rite Masons share the fraternal spirit and reaffirm our dedication to human concord and the brotherhood of all men. As Brothers, we resolve to build, as King Solomon did, peace for all mankind.

The Feast of Tishri celebrates God’s rescue of the Jewish people from captivity in Egypt and symbolizes Scottish Rite Masonry’s dedication to brotherly love and human progress.

Reservations are $25/person. The evening will begin with social time at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be catered by Chances ‘R. Our speakers will be Rev. Dr. Jimmy Shelbourn of Westminster Presbyterian Church and our VMAP Chair, Don Albrecht, 32° KCCH. Entertainment by Greeblatt & Seay.
