Zoroastrian Association of Greater Boston Area (ZAGBA) is a non-profit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

ZAGBA Overview:

February 15, 2016 is when ZAGBA was born - Happy Birthday ZAGBA !

ZAGBA's mission is to conduct religious, cultural, educational, and social activities to preserve and perpetuate the ideals of the Zarathushti faith (also known as Zoroastrianism).

The ZAGBA community has over 200 families, students, and young professionals living throughout New England. These members/friends are Zarathushti (Zoroastrians) or people who have an interest in expanding their knowledge and understanding of the Zarathushti religion, theology, philosophy, and values.

ZAGBA is fortunate to have in the local community Mobeds (priests) who conduct religious services, ceremonies, and rituals; several scholars who study, research, and provide opportunities to learn the teachings of the Prophet Zarathushtra (aka Zoroaster); numerous individuals whose service on executive boards and committees (i.e. youth, sports, service, children and adult education, religious services, outreach) provide leadership and vision to a growing community; and countless active members who through their participation, initiative, and hard work are committed to building a strong community.

ZAGBA maintains close contact with and participates in the activities of other Zarathushti societies in North America and across the globe. ZAGBA is one of the 26 member associations that make up FEZANA (Federation of Zoroastrian Associations of North America), an umbrella organization that facilitates and supports the activities member associations throughout United States and Canada. ZAGBA also participates in regional interfaith activities throughout the year.
