April's topic will be conducted by Bro. Helio Lopes da Costa in a study of Freemasonry discusses: "What Connection Does Judaism Have with Alchemy and Freemasonry?"
In this presentation, attendees will learn about alchemy from a different angle--that of Judaism. Based on the book “The Jewish Alchemists” by Raphael Patai, we will investigate what alchemy is, its origin, history, and its relationship with the Kabbalah and Jewish scholars. We will end our study with a discussion of whether there is a connection between Alchemy and Freemasonry. We hope you join us this month for an exploration of Alchemy, Jewish influence, and Freemasonry.
The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
