The MACEDONIAN ASSOCIATION OF NEW JERSEY “ALEXANDER THE GREAT” was formed after the big march in Washington DC, in 1992, when thousands of Greek Americans and Philhellenes united to raise their voices against the misrepresentation and falsification of history regarding the name MACEDONIA.
«Η ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑ ήταν, είναι και πάντα θα είναι Ελληνική»
“MACEDONIA was, is and always will be Greek” is the historical fact that started the Macedonian Association of NJ “Alexander the Great” and for almost thirty years its members have worked towards communicating this fact and promoting, nurturing and celebrating our Greek Culture, Religion and Ethos.
