El Korah Shriners
Shriners International is a fraternity guided by the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth.
Being a Shriner is about experiencing fun and fellowship with a global community of brothers who are committed to their families and engaged in ongoing personal growth while supporting the philanthropy they started, Shriners Children’s.
Fun & Fellowship
Shriners International was founded in 1872 as a Masonic fraternity that showcased fun and fellowship for its members. No matter what your idea of having fun is, we can accommodate. There are clubs for many activities. And, if there isn’t a club or unit featuring one of your favorite interests, El Korah can help you create one. The best part is, as a Shriner, you can connect with other members who share similar interests and hobbies.

In 1922, fueled by their desire to make a difference in the world, Shriners founded their own philanthropy, Shriners Children’s. Over the past century, it has become one of the largest pediatric sub-specialty healthcare systems in the world with locations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
An exclusive benefit as a Shriner is the opportunity to serve in several meaningful and mission critical roles in support of Shriners Children’s.
El Korah Shriners understand that family is a top priority for our members, and many events and activities at local El Korah Shrine are accommodating to spouses, children and grandchildren.
Becoming a Shriner is about building lifelong relationships that extend beyond ordinary friendships. When you join us, you become part of a network of hundreds of thousands of men of integrity from around the world who are committed to your success and well being.
