Moshe Dayan Lodge

Changed name from Cyrildene Lodge on 14 June 1973

In 1955 Wor Bro J C Lazarow suggested that a Lodge be formed in Cyrildene. This suggestion was met with some opposition but permission was granted and the Cyrildene Lodge was consecrated in 1956. The growth and development of new suburbs in Johannesburg indicated the potential viability of the formation of new Lodges. The name of the Lodge was changed in June 1973 to the Moshe Dayan Lodge.

Naming of the Lodge

Moshe DayanThe Lodge is named in honour of Moshe Dayan (Hebrew: משה דיין‎; 20 May 1915 – 16 October 1981) an Israeli military leader and politician. He was the second child born on the first kibbutz, but he moved with his family in 1921, and he grew up on a moshav (farming cooperative).

As commander of the Jerusalem front in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces (1953–58) during the 1956 Suez Crisis, but mainly as Defense Minister during the Six-Day War in 1967, he became to the world a fighting symbol of the new state of Israel.[2] In the 1930s, he was trained by Orde Wingate to set traps for Palestinian-Arabs fighting the British and he later lost an eye in a raid on Vichy forces in Lebanon.  Read more....
