The origins and significance of the Feast of Tishri make it the most symbolic of Scottish Rite Festivals. The message of Tishri comes to us strongly and clearly from across the ages because it has been preserved in the symbolism and allegory of the Scottish Rite. Through our observance of this great feast of thanksgiving, we, as heirs of Solomon, perpetuate his magnificient Temple of freedom in our lives, our communities, our country, and most of all in our beloved Rite.
As we join in this traditional celebration of the harvest, the officers of the Cumberland Scottish Rite would like to share in our bounty by collecting food to be donated to the Western Maryland Food Bank. We encourage those attending to bring canned or other nonperishable food items.
