About US

The Bahá'í Association at MIT is an organization whose membership is open to all students and faculty at MIT. The Bahá'í Association's main activities involve fellowship and the organization of events that are in line with the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith, which is a world religion founded by Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892). In the past, we've collaborated with student groups on campus with similar goals.

Bahá’í Faith in Cambridge

The Cambridge Bahá’í community has a storied history, particularly in relation to a special visit made in 1912 by Abdu'l-Bahá', the son of the Founder of the Faith.  After 40 years of imprisonment in the Middle East, He traveled to Europe and North America spreading the beautiful principles enunciated by Bahá'u'lláh far and wide.  On the evening of May 23rd, 1912, 'Abdu'l-Bahá celebrated a Bahá’í Holy Day with the Cambridge community at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Francis W. Breed on Harvard Street.
