The nmissioa of the -order is "to ;unite Israelites in the work of promoting~their highest interests and those of humanity; -of developing, elevating, and defending themental and moral character of the race.; of inculoat ing the purest principles of philanthropy, honor and .patriotism ; of -supporting science and art ; alleviating the wants of the poor and needy; visiting and-attend ing theeick; coining to the rescue of vic tims of,persecntiin; providing for, pro teeting and assisting the widow-and or phan on the broaLlestprinciplea of human ity. Their emblem is the Menorah--the gol don candlestick-a ud its -grand. meaning "'let there be light" is expressive~of all the isims of the fraternity, and the fact that the order has gro~wn to such proportions in but little. over half a century is proof of, how true itasuembership has been to its high objocts.
