Jain Center of Greater Boston (JCGB) is primarily a religious social non-profit organization. We welcome all interested in Jain philosophy, live & learn and practice "Jainism". Our centre was one of the first of its kind in North America when it was established in 1973. Since then, the centre has played a pivotal and pioneering role in advancing Jain thought and philosophy in North America and strengthening the roots of the Jain community in the region.

We invite you to visit our centre located in Norwood, MA. We celebrate auspicious Jain events and Jain festivals. We conduct Pathshala for school-age children & Swadhyay for adults.

Jai Jinendra,

Hope all our members are doing fine and enjoying good health.

A gold mala and a flower mala are placed on each dream as it is brought out. Devotees can also sponsor the gold mala or the flower mala.
