Joint Temple Stay Can Be Positive

Well, at least on the Korean Peninsula, if not in Jerusalem.

SEOUL, Jan. 16 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's biggest Buddhist sect, the Jogye Order, said Wednesday it will push for a number of joint projects with the North Korean Buddhist community this year, including a stay-over meditation program at Mount Kumgang in the North."(The Jogye Order) will open a new chapter in inter-Korean Buddhist exchanges in the year 2019," Ven. Wonhaeng, the executive chief of the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, said in a press conference."(We) will push for discussion with related (North Korean) bodies in order that we can arrange for a temple stay (program) in the Singye Temple on Mount Kumgang," he said.

Here in Israel, just wearing a kippa can be a problem.
