The Shinnyo-en Buddhist Foundation graciously invited teens from diverse faiths to participate in the annual Lantern Floating Ceremony in Waikiki. Kara Samuels from Congregation Shir Hadash, was selected as the Jewish teen joining the Santa Clara County Teen Interfaith Leadership Council, led by JCRC Director Diane Fisher and Deacon Steve Herrera. Thousands of people remember their ancestors and lost loved ones through personalized lanterns that are floated en masse into the ocean in an emotional ceremony framed by music and dance from native Hawaiian and Japanese traditions.
