Jain Society of Metropolitan Washington (JSMW) is primarily a religious, social, non-profit organization with approved 503(c) status. We welcome all individuals who are interested in Jain philosophy, live, learn, and practice Jainism. Our Center was one of the first of its kind in North America when it was established in March, 1980. Ever since then, the center 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 celebrate auspicious Jain events and Jain festivals. Also, we conduct Pathshala for school-age children & for adults. We have lecture series by prominent scholars on a regular basis. We invite you to visit our center located in Silver Spring, MD.
