HIGASHI HONGANJI BUDDHIST TEMPLE CLOSURES

Dear Members and Friends,

We regret to inform you that we will be temporarily closing our temple doors. In an effort to keep our members and community safe and help avoid further community spread of the COVID-19 virus, Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple will be suspending all services and activities for the CDC’s recommended eight weeks.  As of now, we plan to reconvene on May 17th but will continue to reevaluate as the situation develops over the coming weeks and update all of you as it continues to change.
