Samir Bichara, the Brazilian who became Worshipful Master of one of the oldest Masonic Lodges in the United States of America



A couple of weeks ago, American Freemasonry celebrated a rather unusual event: a Brazilian was elected Worshipful Master of the third most oldest Masonic Lodges in the United States of America. The Massachusetts Lodge of the Valley of Boston was founded in 1770, being one of the oldest Masonic Lodges in the Western Hemisphere and the U.S..




Samir Bichara, who held the dignity of Senior Warden of the Lodge in the previous term, is a native of Barra do Pirai - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Brother Samir lives in the U.S. since 1998, and in 2006 he began his Masonic journey. His Masonic Lodge counts with almost 200 Brethren, of which only three are of Brazilian origin. Samir's father was twice elected as Worshipful Master and now held the office of Secretary of his Lodge in the Valley of Barra do Piarai.
