Due to a case of arson within the temple facilities, the building is closed until further notice. Details on damage and restoration plans will be updated here as soon as they are available. Thank you for everyone’s support
Masks will once again be required in the Hondo and classrooms while being actively utilized. This is in response to rising COVID cases in schools and is in the interest of protecting our DS teachers and ‘high risk’ members of our community. Masks and hand sanitizer will continue to be provided in the temple foyer.
The Seattle Betsuin office will be reachable by appointment only for a limited time. Please email email@example.com or call (206) 329 – 0800 to inquire or make an appointment
The Seattle Betsuin’s thoughts are with all those affected by the Maui wildfires and the surrounding islands.
