I really like Br. John's idea of getting 3 or 4 Jedi together to get a Jedi Temple put together. Are there local groups that people can join so that we could arrange something like this? We could meet in a park or somewhere that is free for now.

And by that I mean a get together on a fairly regular basis. I'm not even sure how a service or ceremony would work for that kind of thing... BTW, Any Ideas on how a service might work?

People already do this.

Where are you living, Golan? That's the first step.

A pool table.

And a bar.

A bar with a pool table? :)

Br. John wrote: A Jedi Monastery is likely to be the first thing to happen. It's realistic. It's doable. It makes sense. There would be a library, chapel, kitchen, garden and guest quarters. It only takes a few people who'd live there. They may or may not have outside employment. There are self sustaining monasteries that make and sell a wide variety of things.

I've always especially liked this idea.

Here's a Buddhist Monastery / Temple not far from where I live in Southeast Texas. www.buumon.org/about-us1.html


If you guys ever decide to commit to such a project, I would gladly volunteer to take up residence.

Wasn't there that Jedi Locator tool we had?

*EDIT* I found it, here's the link. Take a look, Golan

I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. Reliah over in Vernal seems to be the nearest Jedi to me. That's quite a ways to go. Do you know of anyone that is not on the map but is still an active Jedi? Thanks for the map!

Also, I like the idea of a bar.

Yes, you need to find JediKaren and Red. They both live in Utah.

Whether it's a temple or a simple church, it will take some money. A community is needed for sure, probably in one of the bigger cities. How does one obtain the money to build such a thing. I wonder if we donate or have a fundraiser of some kind. And of course it will take time. But a lot of people talk about having a real temple. I say we go for it and make it a reality. :)

I forgot to ask, would it be exempt for taxes like the other religions?

Does anyone have designs in mind, whether original or from one of the SW movies?

From my understanding the Temple is already a registered 501c (or is it 503c? I can never remember) so it is already a tax exempt organization. Again, just from my understanding.
