      This is to inform JCSC members that our Pujari JI Mukeshbhai will be leaving our Center soon due to denial of his Religious R1 visa renewal by US Immigration Services.


      JCSC is looking for full time candidate to replace Mukeshabhai's position as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we need several volunteers to manage our daily ritual activities and care-taking of the JCSC facilities. These activities include daily morning Pakshalji, Puja and Evening Arti/Mangal Divo.


      Our goal is to have several teams of volunteers who would perform assigned duties primarily in the mornings and the evenings weekdays and all day weekends.


      We urge all members to participate as many hours as you can in a week for this immediate need until we find replacement Pujari.


      You may contact one the following Religious committee member to register for voluntary service or looking for a permanent position of Pujari. Please contact the following members if you have any questions or concerns for updated information.
