Jai Jinendra!                 

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to an exciting year full of activities at the Jain Center of Northern California – Shala. Our goal will be to focus on basic foundation of the principles of Jainism and languages in a practical manner. You will notice some new names, new faces; you will meet some new teachers and bump into familiar ones as well. And hopefully, you will make new friends too. We welcome any new ideas, programs that you can suggest.
