ORDER OF ISH SODI —Recipients of the award are Companions having contributed generously of their industry and skill to the craft and being of moral and virtuous character. In Hebrew, the words, Ish Sodi mean “Man of Choice.”
The Order of Ish Sodi recognizes individual Companions for devotion and service to Cryptic Masonry. The basic qualifications for membership are: ARDOR and ZEAL for Cryptic Masonry and SERVICE to the Cryptic Craft, “beyond the call of duty”.
This Order is conferred annually at a time and place to be determined by the MI Grand Master, RI Deputy Grand Master and RI Principal Conductor of the Work.
SUPER EXCELLENT MASTER—This degree was not originally a part of the Cryptic system, and is not in all jurisdictions as yet. It has one of the best written rituals in Masonry. It deals with the incidents in the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar when Zedekiah, the last King of Judah, was conquered and carried captive to Babylon. It enlarges upon the section of the Royal Arch having to do with the capture of Jerusalem by the Babylonian King, and teaches in most dramatic fashion the lesson of fidelity. The ritual teaches beautiful lessons on the death and ascension of our Savior and the candidate is at last received into full fellowship in the most solemn manner.
The Super-Excellent Master is an honorary degree, to which any Cryptic Masons is entitled by virtue of his being in good standing in his Council. This is classed as the most dramatic and spectacular degree in all Masonic systems.
The Super Excellent Master is conferred only once per year, alternating between Tucson and Phoenix. Those Companions who have not received it should not miss this special opportunity!
