Karem Shrine, where tradition meets tomorrow.
Our core values have remained constant since Karem received its charter in 1919. Karem Shriners are committed to family, fellowship and making the world a better place. As Shriners, we affirm religious tolerance, acceptance, patriotism, freedom, charity and intergrity. We will continue to embrace these values and practice Shrine traditions.
Having traditions doesn't make us stuck in the past. Karem Shriners are reinventing themselves. We recently added a new unit and we're hoping to add more. We're also in the process of updgrading the Shrine itself.
Visit Karem and let us show you how we honor the past, while looking towards the future.
