Show Notes

The Rebekahs are an important component of Odd Fellowship that frequently gets overlooked when talking about the Order.  Prompted by a request from a Rebekah in Texas, we decided to go straight to the top and do an episode with Sister Elizabeth Mowry-Harbstreit, President of the International Association of Rebekah Assemblies.  Sister Elizabeth is a passionate and knowledgeable Rebekah who gives us a thorough education in the history, development, present, and future of the Rebekahs.  She talks about the roots of the Rebekah Degree as an honorary degree restricted to the female relatives of Odd Fellows and how it grew and changed to become an self-guiding unit of Odd Fellowship especially for women.  This is a can't-miss episode for anyone with a strong interest in learning more about Odd Fellowship.  Note: there is no lodge shoutout this episode because no one nominated a lodge.  Be sure and let us know about lodges doing great work at [email protected] so we have a shoutout for future episodes!
