Princeton Durga Mandir Objectives & Historical Perspective:
The idea of establishing a place of worship and a community center was conceived in 1990 and the Central Hindu Association (CJHA), a non-profit religious organization, was created to pursue this idea. The main objectives and goals of CJHA are:
1) To provide a place of worship to Hindu community in Centeral Jersey.
2) To keep our children in touch with religion and culture.
3) To educate our children about our religious and cultural values.
4) To provice a place to our community which they can use at the time of their need to celebrate happy events and share sorrow at sad events.
5) To acquaint the community at large with our culture.
6) To create better understanding among community members with different back grounds in a multi-ethnic society.
The Association is composed of two main administrative units, namely the ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL AND the EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The Executive Committee, elected annually, is responsible for the day-to-day business of the Association, while policy decisions are made by the Board of Directors.
Encouraged by the interest and support of the community, CJHA decided to find a permanent place for worship and community functions. Several community members have begun to actively cooperate with CJHA to achieve the goal of establishing a temple and community center in central Jersey. After evaluating different properties in different locations, CJHA decided to purchase the property located on Highway 27, south of Brunswick.
