From Freemasonry: Studies, Speeches and Sensibilities by Rabbi Raymond Apple.

„Freemasonry to me is escape, relaxation and fellowship. It is also an ethical movement dedicated to making a better world by upright conduct, wise principles and social responsibility. It has worked constructively for three centuries if we date its beginnings from 1717 when the first Grand Lodge came into being. I think we must discount the pious projection of Masonic origins back to Adam and Eve.“

Keep well and be active in Freemasonry.
