Bethel 161

Bethel 161 of Job’s Daughters International meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at 7:00pm at the Lakewood Masonic Center in Long Beach, CA.

“And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren” (Job 42:15). This is the Bible verse upon which Job’s Daughters is based.


One of the strengths of Job’s Daughters is its tie to the Masonic fraternity and other organizations requiring a family Masonic relationship. Girls who wish to join Bethel 161 must be 10–20 years old and bear a Masonic relationship. The local Job’s Daughters organization is called a Bethel, and meetings are usually held in Masonic centers. Adults serving on the Bethel Guardian Council act as advisors for the Bethel members. Adults who work with members of Job’s Daughters must be Certified Adult Volunteers (CAV) who have been trained and screened to ensure a safe environment and experience for all members of the organization.
