********* Temple Closure Due To COVID-19 ********
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.

During these weeks while the temple is closed and we are all staying within our own homes, we will be live streaming our Sunday Services via Facebook. You do need a Facebook account in order to view the live stream, but anyone can sign up at facebook.com and it’s free. Just go to Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hhbt.la or you can also click the round Facebook icon below) on Sunday at 10:00 am. You will also be able to watch the service later if you miss the initial 10:00 am broadcast.
