The Sovereign Military Order Temple of Jerusalem - a heritage built on God Chivalry Family Friendship Faith Hope Loyalty Charity Community

Thank You – For your interest in SMOTJ

The US Order encourages talented, accomplished men and women of high moral character to energetically pursue charitable and civic causes and to improve the Christian presence in the Holy Land. Those who join in such efforts in turn benefit personally from participation in the recovery and perpetuation of the Christian spirit and ideals that impelled the early Templar Knights to dedicate their lives to similar causes. The chivalry, ethics, and rich traditions of this Order shape our focus on those causes today.

Membership in the Order requires that the candidate be a Christian of any denomination and is by invitation only. The principal criteria in selecting members are good character, accomplishments in life and obvious commitment to the ideals of the Order. A candidate’s involvement in other charitable, military, religious and hereditary organizations provides a means of assessing a candidates eligibility, as does his or her professional and social accomplishments. The Order selects only those men and women who deport themselves in an honorable and chivalrous manner, who will be committed to the Order’s values and precepts and who are Ecumenical in thought.

If you are interested in joining in our good works and you would like to be contacted by an officer of the Priory closest to you with information on the membership process. The first step in the process is to submit the form below:
