History of Samaj

Karamsad Samaj of USA was established in 1972. Few visionary and loyal gamvasis like Mahedrabhai A. Shah, Manherbhai C. Shah, Kiritbhai C. Patel, Krishnakantbhai H. Patel, Jaykrishnabhai B. Patel, Mahedrabhai M. Patel, Ghanshambhai M Patel, Balwantbhai M Patel and Kanubhai Mistri to name few founded one of its kinds Samaj here in New Jersey. It was a monumental task and lots of hard work. They all played a huge role in making this possible. The common interest was to serve our community and their determination for providing a strong platform for our next generation. Our initial meeting was held at Mahedrabhai & Hansikaben Shahís residence. Our first function was Naratri Garba attended by 100 gamvasis at 215 Park Ave in Hoboken, NJ in 1972.

After 1973 onward every year we had two picnics, garba and Diwali dinner up to 1990. The Collection from Matajiís arti was distributed to Karamsadís religions organizations. Then after we had a picnic and a Diwali dinner with the Garba . All of the Samajís events were and are supported unconditionally by volunteers.

In 2002 the Karamsad Samaj of USA was registered as a non-profit organization in State of New Jersey.

We are grateful to the founding members and volunteers of our Samaj.
