About Us

As diverse & multicultural a city as Toronto is, Mount Sinai Lodge originally attracted many men in the Jewish community.  These included two past mayors of the City of Toronto and members of various professions and notables in the fields of business and commerce.  Our brethren have served with distinction in the service of our country both militarily and politically. The lodge blossomed in membership reaching levels over 600 at times and was mother to Mosaic Lodge, instituted as Palestine Lodge in 1920 and The Lodge of the Pillars in 1960.

About Mount Sinai Pillars

The Lodge of the Pillars was further committed to promoting brotherhood amongst men of the various faiths originally the Jewish & Christian faith which was predominant in Toronto in the 1960’s.

The brethren have promoted various charitable, cultural and social events and continue to do so.

Many of our brethren were so committed to  Freemasonry that they became elected or appointed Grand Lodge Officers  and have been the recipients of the Wm. Mercer Wilson Medal & The Grand Master’s Meritorious Award.

We embrace men of all faiths & cultures who believe in the existence of a Supreme Being, sincerely promote and practice the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief & Truth and have a genuine commitment to make themselves better men – husbands, fathers & sons.

In 2010, Mount Sinai Lodge and the Lodge of the Pillars amalgamated to form Mount Sinai-Pillars Lodge bringing together the brethren of the two lodges who held a close affinity to each other over the past 50 years.

Why become a Freemason?  Underlying the entire mystique about this ancient and noble fraternal organization is our commitment to each other, and of course – it is fun!

In 2014 we celebrated our 100th anniversary.

What Is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is the oldest and largest world wide fraternity dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of a Supreme Being. Although of a religious nature, Freemasonry is not a religion. It urges its members, however, to be faithful and devoted to their own religious beliefs.
