The Royal Order of Jesters, or R.O.J., is a branch of Shriners that was established in 1917. In 1911, thirteen Shriners led by Noble A.M. Elison, traveled to Hawaii on a pilgrimage to the Shriner’s Aloha Temple. While there the Shriners developed the idea for the Royal Order of Jesters, a branch of masons who exist “for the encouragement of laughter and fun in leisure times.” This sentiment is reflected in their motto, “Mirth is King.”
