Rabbi-Mason Receives Honorary Doctorate from Australian Catholic University

The Australian Catholic University today conferred a major award on Rabbi Raymond Apple, the former spiritual leader of Sydney’s Great Synagogue [and Past Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales].

Especially in English-speaking countries, [Freemasonry] has always had a high proportion of eminent Jewish members, including leading rabbis. Among present day Australian rabbis, high masonic office is held by Rabbi Shalom Coleman of Perth, Rabbi Chaim Gutnick of Melbourne and myself in Sydney. Other rabbis and ministers are past masters of their lodges. (“Freemasonry and Judaism are Compatible,” Bro. Rabbi Dr Raymond Apple, AO RFD PJGW Past Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of New South Wales)

Catholic prelates have been cozy with the rabbis in Australia since at least the early 1970’s:
