Sikh Sangat Society – Boston
The Sikh Sangat Society Boston was founded in December 2005. The gurdwara is centrally located in Somerville, making it accessible to Sikhs living in and around the Boston area.
The sangat (community) currently rents a small space in an office building in Somerville, which they share with other businesses and organizations. The existence of agurdwara inside the building is not evident from the outside; however the sangat has truly made the space their house of worship. The hallway is used to store shoes during the service, a small room is used to warm up food, and the largest room is a prayer space that is also used as a classroom for lessons and a langar hall for community meals. The size of the office is no longer suitable for the growing community, however.
The sangat (community) is seeking a larger, permanent space in the surrounding area, which would allow them to have a separate kitchen and langar hall, as well as classrooms for students and apartments for visiting religious singers and preachers.
