Sangha makes Senbei

Our Sangha has a blast getting together to make senbei crackers for our food bazaars! We spend a Saturday rolling, cutting, and frying dough; coating the crackers with sauce and baking them; and bagging it all up for sale. It's such a great time to chat with and get to know other members of the sangha better, have some free lunch, and at the end of the day you can even munch on the reject sebei.

This lecture is followed by a Traditional Buddhist Opening Service with keynote speaker Rev. Marvin Harada and Bishop Koshin Ogui of the Buddhist Churches of America, and a workshop by Dr. Kenji Akahoshi.
