Since it's sesame paste, and sesame oil goes rancid so easily, I would store it in the refrigerator. That's where I keep mine.

I disagree -- tahini has been used in the Middle East for eons, before refrigeration. I keep it in its jar on a pantry shelf, and I have never had any hint of rancidity. Previous questions on this topic have also taken both sides, as do internet and other reference sources. If you want to refrigerate it, go ahead, since it won't do any harm.
