Short description:
The Sovereign Military Order of the Temple of Jerusalem (OSMTH) is a modern-day ecumenical Christian knighthood. The Order is engaged in a number of charitable activities, including the support of youth groups to prevent criminalization of city children, educational projects (e.g., "Wiener Kindertheater," Austria; Peace education lectures in French High Schools), support of schools and hospitals and other institutions of public interest in the Middle East, often through established channels of the Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran or Anglican churches. Religious leaders have been aided to reach conflict zones (Kosovo) to start mediation efforts, and action has been taken under the OSMTH banner to prevent human rights abuse (again, in Kosovo).
