“Jainism: A Resilient Path to Peace”

The Federation of Jain Associations in North America (JAINA) will be celebrating its 21st Convention on the Fourth of July weekend — from July 1st to 6th, 2021. This year, the virtual event is planned to be a global event and is expected to attract an even larger audience from the USA, Canada, India, UK, Australia, UAE and many other countries. In face of all the turbulence throughout the world in the last year, it is paramount for us to be vigilant, compassionate, tolerant and to “keep the faith”. The Convention will showcase our firm belief that spirituality enables us to sustain our sense of self and purpose through beliefs, principles, values, and morals. Hence the theme for this year’s Convention isJainism: A Resilient Path to Peace”.
With 250+ volunteers working to make this convention a success, Public Relations and Media Committee Co-Chair Mr. Rahul Jain of Washington DC is thrilled to announce the ongoing addition of new events, programs and speakers – significantly elevating the anticipation of the entire team for the Convention!
