About Dr. Raj Patil
As a community volunteer for the Jain faith and my strong belief and
involvement in Multifaith activities, I often tell people I learned
and keep exploring various philosophies of different faiths to better
understand spiritual & religious sentiments from their prospective . I
served as the president of Sri Jain Mandir, Toronto for more than six
years and a life time member of JSOT (Jain Society of Toronto). Both
are non-profit religious organizations, serving Jain Community at
large for spiritual and religious activities.
I am the recipient of the “Queen`s Diamond Jubilee Award “for the
community services in 2012.
I am actively involved in a variety of fund raising activities to
benefit seniors programs.
