The Seven Cardinal Principles of AZA
The Seven Cardinal Principles are printed on the Menorah above, six around the star and one on the base.
Patriotism: loyalty to my homeland, to its laws, to its principles, to its ethics. To die for it if need be, but primarily to live for it
Judaism: Always to observe the tenets of my faith; ever to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord my god
Filial Love: ever to honor and love my parents. To be considerate of my elders and to respect age.
Charity: to give myself and my substance for all worthy causes; to be kind and generous to all in need, regardless of race or creed.
Conduct: never too bold, never too forward, ever humble, ever observing the principles of gentlemen
Purity: to keep my soul pure, my mind active and my body healthy
Fraternity: a spirit of sociability, of cooperation and of friendship toward all AZA's that shall make of us one day fellowship; a love of and a loyalty to AZA and its ideals.
