David Kinson, 32°
Valley of Keene
Two Historical Degrees, the 15° and 16°, are conferred in a Council of Princes of Jerusalem. They cover the period from B.C. 538 to B.C. 516. These degrees depict events connected with the end of the Babylonian Captivity of Israel, the return of some of the captives to Jerusalem, and the rebuilding of the Temple.
The Valley of Keene takes great pride presenting these degrees in a colorful, interesting and enjoyable manner. Elaborate costumes and fine portrayals of these degrees build candidate interest for a long lasting relationship in the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite. Keep an eye out for upcoming dates in the State Calendar.
