    My understanding is that in NJ a yarmulke or similar religious headwear is permitted.

    Here in India, Sikh Freemasons are allowed to wear their turbans to lodge meetings.

    I wouldn't disagree with them except for if they were going through one of the degrees then I would say that they need to be prepared accordingly without the religious wear.

    LOL. That might be the very time they feel it's most necessary.

    Many would say the topic of this thread should be
    Can a Jewish Brother NOT Wear a Yamaka in a Lodge Room?
    rather than
    Can a Jewish Brother Wear a Yamaka in a Lodge Room?
