Welcome to the Grand Lodge of New Jersey.

Odd Fellowship is one of the oldest fraternities in the world. This non-political and non-sectarian order was founded on the basis of universal brotherhood. The order stresses the importance of the principles of Friendship, Love, and Truth.  

We are the family of odd fellowship, composed of men, women, and youth, believing in a supreme being, the creator and preserver of the universe, who have come together in our local communities having the same beliefs and values as others... that Friendship, Love and Truth are the basic guidelines that we need to follow in our daily lives. Through working in our local communities, townships, counties, or nationally we understand that we can make a difference in the lives of people in our world.

Do you believe that Friendship, Love and Truth should be the basic guidelines to live by?

Do you believe in a supreme being, the creator and preserver of the universe?

Do you want to make a difference?

YES? Then we need you!

The members of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows are sometimes referred to "Odd Fellows" or "Rebekahs." Odd Fellows have also become known in many areas as "The Three Link Fraternity" which is evidenced by our world wide "Three Link Emblem" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth. These three links symbolize the chain that binds our members together and illustrates that our communities, townships, counties and nation are strongest when joined together.
