Upcoming Activity...

Spring greetings! The Heiwa Peace and Reconciliation Foundation of New York will celebrate our 4th Year Anniversary online on Sunday, March 20 at 10:30am – 12:00 noon. We would like to invite you to join our celebration from wherever you are. The last two years have been difficult for the Heiwa Foundation as it has been for many non-profits, yet we are still surviving and moving forward in this new era. We always appreciate your kind support. As the world becomes more and more chaotic as we now have to cope with a major war and unstable economic conditions as well as the Covid-19 pandemic, we also can deeply feel how important it is to be able to live our lives in a state of “peace and reconciliation.” It is an important time for the Heiwa Foundation to be active and promote peace in our mind, speech and body, as well as developing reconciliation in relation to others. This 4th year gathering will begin with interfaith prayer for a peaceful world by African religion (Dr. Remi Alapo), Buddhism (Ven. Refa), Christianity (Rev. Dr. Ouida Joi Cooper-Rodriguez), Hinduism(Guru Dileepji), Islam (Imam Muhammad Shahidullah), Native American(Queen Mother Dr. Delois Blakely) and Sikhism(Dr. Kirpal Singh). This is followed by Peace Talks which various speakers will discuss their “Thoughts on Peace Building.” Mrs. Tomiko Morimoto West, an atomic bombing survivor; Tak Furumoto, Hiroshima-kai Honorary Chair; Jim Luce, President/Founder of New York Global Leaders Lions Club; James Lynch, President of the Buddhist Council of New York; and Shinji Harada, Hiroshima Peace Culture Ambassador will be our speakers. At the Celebration, We will share what we have been doing in the past, as well as our vision for the future. Since we will come together by zoom, you can prepare your own drink, lunch and dessert. If you like, you can also bring your instrument and play for us.
