Sovereign Torah Offer

JUNE 17, 2019

Last Saturday 15 June, it was offered to the Grand Sovereign Lodge of Portugal, the Torah, the sacred book of Judaism.

This honorable gift was made to the Sovereign by the Portuguese Jewish Association, a place that is considered ” the Jewish nation ” in Portugal.

We welcome this symbolic gesture, which is another step taken by the Sovereign, in its approach to the most important religious communities present in Portugal.

We recall that Freemasonry declares to combat intolerance, ignorance and fanaticism. These three evils are intrinsically related. Ignorance is, without a doubt, the origin and heart of fanaticism and all intolerance, especially religious.
