We come

from Lebanon, the

land of the renowned millennial

cedars which were used by Adonhiram

in the building of Solomon's temple,  which were

also used by Noah to build his great ark to sail over the

great flood with his three sons who were true Masons, masters of

Antediluvian traditions and arts... Lebanon, the country with glorious cities

such as Beirut, Byblos, Sidon, and Tyre that gave birth to the most accomplished Mason,

Hiram Abi. We are from this Orient (Middle-East), where Egypt's pyramids are located and where

the very first civilization flourished in old Mesopotamia (Tygris and Euphrates), the birthplace of many

renowned philosophers,

mathematicians, sages,

learned priests and Masons.
