Day of Remembrance Dharma Service (February 19)

We welcome you to join us in-person at the San Mateo Buddhist Temple or via Zoom for our Sangha led Dharma Service on Sunday, February 19, the 81st Anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, authorizing what was to become the mass forced removal and incarceration of all Japanese Americans on the West Coast.

Sangha member Ron Munekawa will share a Dharma reflection inspired by his experiences playing the role of Ojiichan in the Palo Alto Players Production of Allegiance, a musical set during in the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans.
