The Freemasons are a fraternal organization dating from the 16th century.  They are thought of by many as a secret society with far-reaching powers that can be used to assist members in everday life. Masonic passes are private signals of recognition, such as particular handshakes.

Given that they share a number of themes and ideals, including the immortality of the soul and the importance of charity, some anti-semites believe that Judaism is affiliated with freemasonry.
