Jitendra Vora, Sanjay Shah and Arti Mehta, all members of the Jain Center of Greater Boston, sat in a meeting room on June 21 at their new temple, located on Nichols Street, preparing for this weekend’s upcoming celebration.

Volunteers have been working on preparing the center for months. The facility will be very bare until the rest of the items, including idols, are brought over from the Cedar Street center. The three members sat in a conference room with wall-to-wall bookshelves with a variety of books on Jainism.

“We are getting a new home,” said Mehta, vice president of the organization.

More than 300 families currently attend the Jain Center of Greater Boston at 15 Cedar St. in Norwood but on Saturday, June 26, the members will begin their worship in their new building at 556 Nichols St.
