YJA sends you and your family the warmest thoughts and best wishes for this holiday season. Enjoy this time spent with loved ones!

Mixing up the 3 Jewels? Don’t know why we make a saathio? Not sure the difference between Anekantvaad & Aparigraha? YJA Pathshala is here for you!

Whether you have been to Pathshala before or not, this online program is meant to be useful for learners at all levels of knowledge of Jainism. If you are unable to attend an in-person Pathshala due to conflicts, distance, or lack of availability, our online lessons will help you gain a solid familiarity with Jainism basics and explore questions that are important to you. Lessons will include videos, podcasts, and more - so no matter your learning style, we're making content that will be accessible, interesting, and fun!

YJAP will begin in January - sign up here to be the first to find out when it opens!
Sign up today!


With your help, we were able to collect over 4,000 articles of clothing for YJA's first Interregional Clothing Drive! Congrats to the South region for having the most donations and winning the competition! #YJAGivesBack
