There are two main Oaths within the Order: the Simple Oath and the Solemn Vow. There is also an Oath of Office and an Oath of Confidence.

If you have a legitimate reason why you can’t use your legal name then please notify the Vice President of Membership Affairs before taking an oath. If your legal name should change for whatever reason then please inform an Intake Officer.

Members may wish to take a personal Jedi Oath (formulated in personal words), but a personal oath is not considered binding in the eyes of TotJO. Any pledge no matter in what form is a valid oath, no doubt, but it is not specific, in an official form, to the members who are Jedi here.

To take an oath or vow is public and personal in nature. This means it is witnessed by the Temple in the form of a public announcement with direct reference to the person taking it.

An oath or vow is a promise with sacred and legal character, the fulfilment of which is a serious obligation. Such a promise implies more than a wish or a desire, it is a firm decision to fulfil the oath or vow which is taken.

All oaths and vows must be made sincerely and knowingly with sufficient deliberation and due discernment. All oaths and vows must be taken freely, that is without grave and unjust fear, malice or ill intent. Any oath or vow made under such circumstances is invalid.

Also invalid is an oath or vow made out of ignorance or error concerning an element which constitutes the substance of the oath or vow. Ignorance is lack of knowledge; error is mistaken judgment. Ignorance or error invalidates the oath or vow if the person vowing lacked knowledge of, or erred in judgment about, something that is of the substance of the oath or vow.

To take the Simple Oath you should post it as a reply to your Journal inserting your name where required. Your oath does not have to be in English, you may use any of the translated versions we have below, but if you make the oath in a language you do not speak then it is insincere and counts as being invalid.

The Simple Oath

The Simple Oath is a non-mandatory oath of dedication to the Jedi Path. It binds you to the Jedi Way until you are ready for Knighthood or until you decide to leave. The Simple Oath has previously been a requirement of rank advancement, but this is no longer the case. If you are taking the Simple Oath then please post it as a response to your journal.

Translations for the Simple Oath: English, français, Deutsch, Русский, español

The Solemn Vow

The "Solemn Vow" is taken by those who have completed the required Apprenticeship training and decided to dedicate their lives to the Jedi Way as a binding and lifelong commitment.

Translations for the Solemn Vow: English, français, DeutschРусский, español

Oath of Office

The Offices for which the Oath of Office must be taken can be found here.

There are many positions of responsibility that require both dedication and trust from those who choose to fulfil the duties prescribed to them. Because of this we ask all those in such positions to take the Oath of Office below under these conditions. The Oath does not have to be made publicly though a record of it being taken will be kept by the Council.

Any and all officers are expected to take this oath and be held accountable for their actions if they breach its terms. Officers agree to the conditions of the Oath when they agree to take on the responsibilities of their office, as such officers will be held accountable to the terms of this Oath irrespective of whether there is a record of them taking it.
