Our Tamil Community’s Unity is our goal. New York Tamil Sangam has been established 50 years ago for uniting all community members of Tamil ethnic background.
Children of our community is our primary focus as they would be torchbearers of our rich traditions carried from Sangam periods to now.
NYTS has done countless events to help fellow human beings, by collecting funds and distributing meaningfully to the needy. Not only to Tamil Community, our Charity activities have encompassed international calamities as well.
New York Tamil Sangam has upheld all art forms in Tamil as precious, and included them in most of our celebrations. Traditional music instruments, Traditional games and sports were always cherished and propagated.
Our celebrations are around Tamil Festivals such as Pongal, Deepavali, Chithirai Thirunaal and we celebrate them with dedication to our cultural values displaying from dresses to decorations.
Tamil is the one of the Oldest languages on earth, and our ancient literature is very precious to our community. We organize Kaviarangam, Sollarangam, Pattimandram, Speech by academicians and literary stalwarts.
