The Scottish Rite, Business Ethics Alliance, and Blue Cross Blue Shield are hosting Ethics on Trial on Thursday, April 24 at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center, beginning at 6:15 p.m.
This year's medical-themed drama embodies respect for the individual versus the good of the society. The stage is set by learning an organ donor has refused to donate, and the intended recipient - his cousin - will die without the organ.
Is this morally indefensible?
Join the trial where the plaintiff, defendant, judge, and you - the jury - determine the fate of Medical Ethics. The debate is rousing, intellectually stimulating, adn most definitely you will come to understand the complexity and entanglement of a true ethical dilemma.
Please register at www.BusinessEthicsAlliance.org or 402.319.9459
Join us for refreshments and networking at 5:30 p.m. if you wish.

We'll continue with several more degrees on Friday, May 2, 2014 beginning at 6:00 p.m., and candidates will return on Saturday, May 3 at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast, followed by the remaining degrees. For prospective candidates, please consider joining the Scottish Rite for more light in Masonry.

Since 1851 Scottish Rite has been a force in the Nebraska Masonic World. Although records show that when Albert Pike, 33°, Grand Commander, visited Omaha he stated he wasn’t sure the Valley would ever become very strong. Leadership since that time has proven him wrong.
There was a strong Masonic movement in Omaha in the early 1900’s when the Masonic Building at 19th and Douglas, the Scottish Rite Masonic Center (SRMC) were built, Job’s Daughters, Omaha Masonic Home for Boys (now Omaha Home for Boys) and Rainbow International were established here in Omaha. Even the second Chapter of DeMolay (now oldest) was charted on the second floor of the SRMC in that time frame.
Please take time to tour our website and if you pass our door in downtown Omaha, please stop by to tour our building or just to say hello. We are open from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
Welcome to the Omaha Valley of Scottish Rite website. Since the mid 1800’s we have served as one of the Cornerstones of Freemasonry in Nebraska. The Scottish Rite Masonic Center is located at 20th and Douglas Street in Omaha, Nebraska. This neo-classical building is the pillar of Masonry in downtown Omaha.
Our motto, "To do that which is right to do," Morality – Education –Charity, is the philosophy that helps us set our objectives. Our goals are to educate our members in the Masonic ideals, to help children communicate through our RiteCare™ Language Disorder Clinic, help educate our future leaders with scholarships to University of Nebraska at Omaha and the support of other Masonic Organizations.

Joining the Scottish Rite builds your character and opens a social network of men who have
been on the same journey. If not for Scottish Rite there may never be a chance to meet some
but as a member you would find them a friend.
