Jedi Council? was created by Whyte Horse
So who are the Jedi council? I understand there are 3 different organizations here with different roles like the TOTJO council, the legally named people on the totjo registration, and the jediism people with their ranks. So is there some other jedi council? Like one that has all the jedis from all the sites or something like that?

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.

No such council to my knowledge. However TOTJO.org has council members from different locations like the UK and the US. Unfortunately there aren't many Jedi sites that are still active. =/

Me and several others in the past have attempted to organize an independent council to represent all the orders....this however proved difficult because as was pointed out...not many active orders left...and getting them to come together for pretty much anything is a chore in itself...

Well here's the Jedi Council www.templeofthejediorder.org/council

But I wouldn't say we had 3 different organisations here. We are one organisation at TotJO and all of us are legally recognisable members of the church (if we have taken the oath and application). We have two separate ranking structures, the clergy path and the Knight path but both intertwine with each other...

Just to add extra clarification:

The ranks are awarded to members based upon the training they complete and advancements they make while studying and interacting here (and in the outside world too!).

The Council is a group of members who oversee the administration and direction of TOTJO.

Some of us are also on the "Board of Directors" - in other words, we take the legal responsibility for TOTJO since it is an internationally recognised and legally incorporated.

As Akkarin mentioned, there is also the Clerical path and this is also another "stream" within TOTJO.

So all of these are roles, ranks and offices that are all part of the whole organisation. I hope this makes sense :)

Do we keep in contact with the other orders which are still active, Ryu?
Or have is there little connectivity between TOTJO and the remaining active orders?
A universal Jedi council would be extremely difficult to work out, and I am quite happy with the system here.
However, perhaps engaging them might help to keep our brethren informed and aware of others out there?

Just my thoughts :) Thanks for the clarification regarding the structuring of the council, everyone!
