Thank you for visiting the Mideast Chapter’s website of Maheshwari Mahasabha of North America (MMNA). The Mideast Chapter caters to the Maheshwari community in the mid-Atlantic states of Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. We help carry out the charter of MMNA as governed by the National Executive Committee (NEC).
MMNA Mideast Chapter was created to help regionally organize the people of Maheshwari and Marwari origins living in or visiting the area. We welcome everyone interested in the culture, heritage, and customs of the Marwari people with their ancestral roots in the state of Rajasthan in India.
We hope this website will provide useful information for you to stay informed about our various activities, network with the community members within the regions and throughout North America, and facilitate discussion on common interests.
Through great effort by the members and team of the Mideast Chapter families, we have been routinely organizing many community activities with great success and participation for the past several years. We regularly celebrate Diwali and Holi together as a community with food/cultural programs. Festivals like Teej and Gangaur have also been very popular events. We have also hosted community picnics. These activities have been a wonderful way to not only socialize with people from various backgrounds but also showcase talent, introduce our culture to the new generation, and foster new friendships.
Mideast Chapter also proudly hosted the 2010 IMRC National Convention.
MMNA strives to give back to the community through activities such as food drive. Mideast MMNA is truly your cultural home far away from home. Many thanks to all our Mideast volunteers who help make all these events a great success.
