Geschiedenis

The International Association of Rebekah Assemblies, also known as the Daughters of Rebekah or simply ‘Rebekahs,’ was established in 1851 as the women’s auxiliary of the larger Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF). The Rebekahs promote philanthropic work and actively fundraise for such charities as the IOOF Educational Foundation, The Arthritis Foundation, the Visual Research Foundation, and the Odd Fellows & Rebekahs Pilgrimage for Youth.

While membership to the Rebekahs was originally restricted to the wife and daughters of Odd Fellows who had obtained the Scarlet Degree, membership opened to all women above the age of 18 in 1894 and eventually to men above the age of 18in the early twentieth century. Although men might hold offices at the lower levels of each Rebekah lodge, only women may hold the higher offices based upon the level of degrees that have been conferred upon them.

The levels include:

Lodge degree:
Rebekah degree

Encampment degree:
Ladies Encampment Auxiliary (LEA) degree

Patriarchs Militant degree:
Ladies Auxiliary Patriarchs Militant (LAPM) degree
