Description

The Jain Center of Greater Charlotte (JCGC) serves the spiritual, cultural, social, and community needs of Jain families in and around metropolitan Charlotte area. JCGC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the practice, understanding, promotion, and preservation of the Jain faith. More than 100 local area families are members of JCGC. In addition we have members who live away from Charlotte area, but who support the activities and goals of JCGC. JCGC members meet regularly for worship, ceremonies, and festivals throughout the year. A cornerstone of JCGC activities is children's religious education and training. This is covered under Pathshala activities. JCGC is engaged in an ambitious project of building a unique place of worship (Jain Center) in Charlotte Ambitious Project of building Jain Center in Charlotte - Need your help and support to complete this project: Land to build the Jain Center was purchased and later donated to JCGC by the Kamlesh and Bhavna Shah of Charlotte. Several fundraising events have been carried out and a significant amount of money to support the project has been raised from generous donations. However more funds will need to be raised before construction can begin in earnest. We need your help and support in making this project successful. Donating towards construction of Jain temples is considered one of the highest form of giving according to Jain scriptures. JCGC carried out bhoomi poojan to sanctify the donated land on July 22, 2007. The “shila ropan” (stone laying) ceremony has been scheduled in April 2008. From now until that time we expect to obtain a grading permit, carry out site clean-up, engage a contractor, and obtain a building permit to begin construction on all structures.
