Recent Temple Activities
Jain Center of Connecticut (JCC) signed a memorandum of understanding with Hindu Cultural Center (HCC) of Connecticut to build a Jain Derasar within Hindu temple premise. HCC will provide a dedicated room for Jain Derasar by the end of June 2018 and an additional room for expansion once they finish construction of their new building. JCC is trying hard to get Derasar ready prior to Paryushan in September 2018.

Jinchandarji Maharaj will visit JCC in Connecticut and conduct pravachan (lecture) for our community members on 6th July 2018.

Ten high school students from JCC will also attend YJA Convention 2018 in Chicago.

Jain Center of Connecticut had an amazing start to Mahavir Jayanti 2018 program. For being a very small community, JCC had around 150 people that attended the celebrations. Level 1 kids marched onto the stage with their Moms and recited the Navkar Mantra, Chattari Mangalam along with Logas and Uvasagram. Skits were presented representing Humility subdues Ego, along with dances and  also presented a very thoughtful and thought provoking debate on “Ahimsa and the role of Plant-based Foods”.

Kids were proud of all the presentations while their parents were proud of their kid's growing knowledge. The adults who danced were simply glad that they could continue to stand after a grueling dance number. Everyone was glad to head onto the swamivatsalya and nourish themselves to some delectable vegan dinner.

Young members of Jain Center of Connecticut (JCC) participated in YJA North East Retreat in Boston, MA. JCC conducts regular Pathshala twice month on Sunday with participation from about 35 students also will be hosting Mahavir Jayanti celebration on 1st April, 2018 in Fairfield, CT.

On the evening of December 23rd. 2016, our youth coordinator, Shivani Doshi had arranged an Alumni get together with the generous offer of Amar Gada. Our keynote speaker was a past alumni and a successful entrepreneur, Nimit Maru, who owns and operates an IT training institute in New York and Chicago.

The presentation was inspiring and enjoyable as Nimit spoke about his personal story and the path he took through his many business ventures with both successes and failures and the lessons he learnt from those struggles. Our Level 3 and Level 4 students along with their parents had a chance to meet many of our past Pathshala students who are pursuing different educational paths and professional careers. Nimit and the alumni shared their experiences and shared advice that would help them going forward.
