Welcome to HOD Shimshon

The Shimshon Lodge of Hebrew Order of David (HOD) is one of many chapters worldwide.

President's Corner - 08/22/2021


We had a couple of events last week that I wanted to share with you.

First, seven of us worked at the hot dog stand at Gas South Arena during the James Taylor/Jackson Brown concert on August 17. It was a night filled with camaraderie, hard work, and fun. We're still waiting to find out how much money we earned for the Lodge in salary, however we did make just over $60 in tips for the Lodge. If you haven't worked one of these events, stay tuned. We're planning to do one per quarter, if possible, and we recommend new brethren join us.


Second, as you know, we attended a Multi-Lodge Initiation at Lodge Bezalel last Thursday. It was a well planned event with just under 100 attendees. Multi-Lodge events are not easy to pull off.  Yasher Koach to Lodge Bezalel for everything they did from soup-to-nuts. The opened their web site to handle all the registrations, printed our new brethren's certificates, had our new badges prepared, initiated 20 new brethren, had a candle lighting ceremony, and fed us a very nice chicken dinner. Again, yasher koach. Also, thank you to WB David Adler for taking pictures. We had 18 from Shimshon, including our four new initiates, at the Initiation. It was a very very nice evening. Our new brethren are pictured in the below picture.
