About Us
Jain Center of South Florida (JCSF) is relatively small organization, currently 100-120 Jain families. Prior to 1993, only handful of Jain families gathered for Jain religious and social activities.

Our aim is to, provide place of worship for Jain followers, learn and promote Jainism. Support and promote Jain principles of Ahimsa, Apatigraha, Anekant and also to enrich our future generation to learn and value their spiritual Heritage.

Brief History
JCSF was formed in 1993. Bylaws were established in 1995. Our first attempt to build Jain temple in this land scarcity area was to buy four acre land next to the Hindu temple. Bhumi Pujan was performed in1998. Due to various zoning laws revisions, we were denied permit to build the Jain temple. Our dream continued, Jain center kept the faith in their abilities and finally in late 2005, JCSF bought the around 4000 sq. feet of commercial office space in the newly built beautiful city called WESTON, with high visibility and easy access from interstate highways which serve well for our neighboring area like Naples, Ft. Myers, Palm Beach and north.
