Free Meals During COVID Crisis
Dear friends and supporters,
Although our place of worship has mostly remained closed since March, we have nevertheless distributed hundreds of free meals open to all members of the community every Sunday. This is our way of giving back to the community and helping alleviate some of the burdens faced by people distressed by the economic and social adversities of the pandemic.
By your generous weekly donations we have been able to continue giving out these free meals and want to thank you for your continued support. If you have not already done so, kindly consider making a tax-deductible donation to ISKCON of New Jersey as we battle through the new wave of rises in cases.
Gita Jayanti 2020
ISKCON of New Jersey Sunday School
Hare Krishna! Announcing our Gita Jayanti newsletter. Please read it here: https://www.smore.com/m4afz
For years, students from all classes have been memorizing and presenting Bhagavad Gita verses and their translations to honor this important scripture in our lives. Even though we were not able to commemorate Gita Jayanti together in-person this year, our Sunday School celebrated it on December 20th. This year, each class was responsible for a different set of chapters from the Gita. Our youngest class, Gopal class, covered chapters 1 - 4, Kishore class did chapters 5 - 8, Madhava class recited from chapters 9 - 12, and finally, our oldest class, Govinda class, presented chapters 13 - 18. The Sunday School Leadership Interns were last. In our newsletter, we invite you to view the Zoom recording below where all of our wonderful students recited their verses, led by their respective teachers: Deepshika mataji, Vrinda mataji, Damni mataji, Prema Rasa mataji, Nalini mataji, and Premananda prabhu. Our Govinda class also wrote realizations to their verses, which can be found on the newsletter page below the Zoom recording information. Please take some time to look at their amazing work. Thank you to students, parents, and congregation members for their support!
