Welcome to HTS Balvihar family!
We hope you all had a great break this weekend. We at Balvihar are all excited to meet you all in about a week for our first day of Balvihar calsses.
We will conduct an open house (in-person) on Friday, September 8th, 2023, at 6:30pm at Hindu Temple, Allentown, for all existing and new families who are registered for Balvihar year 2023-24. We look forward to helping you navigate this year. It is advisable for all Balvihar families who have questions to come for this session so that we can answer any queries. This helps us move the regular classes on schedule.
Balvihar Seva Signup:
Balvihar is completely a volunteer run organization. Teachers and organizers are all donating their time towards the service of Hindu Temple Society and its community members. We hope you become a part of our pursuit for peace, progress and prosperity for all.
We require all families to volunteer for at least one Balvihar date. Please be advised that this signup is mandatory for all families and there's a $50 fee for families who have not signed up for any Seva. We request you to signup while the spots are available now.
During Celebration of festivals, Dussera, Deepavali & Holi - Volunteers help with food, packing, distribution, arts - crafts and other logistics. Together we become the family that we want our children to grow up into.
