This Sunday July 23, 2023 at 11:00am we will have our hybrid Obon/Hatsubon Service at IOBT. This service honors all our ancestors who have passedand includes a special memorial for our members and friends who have died in the last 12 months ("Hatsubon" means the first Obon after a person's death).
If joining us in person, come to the temple!
Our last Obon/Hatsubon Service in 2023 was held under the awning after the fire. Now, we are back in the hondo (main hall of the temple)!
Come and see our progress. There is a lot of work yet to be done, but we are at least able to hold service in the building again.
NOTE: This photo of our onaijin (altar) was from before the fire. Join us on Sunday (in person or remote) to see what it looks like with its refurbished hardwood floor!
