Upcoming Events

Mr. Jon Osaki, Guest Presenter
Special Viewing: Documentary Films “Yonsei Eyes” and “My Dog Teny”  Wednesday, October 25th — 10:00 AM at the UJCC
We are so pleased to announce that Jon Osaki will be our guest  presenter on October 25th. Jon is the Executive Director of the Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC) in San Francisco. JCYC’s mission is to cultivate and enrich the lives of children and youth from diverse, multi-cultural communities throughout San Francisco and beyond.
Jon is a good family friend of Rev. Roger Morimoto—Roger goes back a long ways with the Osaki family. Jon is the cousin of Gail and Michael Yamamoto, Kerri and Donald Katayama and Marsha Okada, members of our Church.
Jon will present two powerful documentary films that he has directed: “Yonsei Eyes” and “My Dog Teny”.
“Yonsei Eyes” is the story of two fourth-generation Japanese Americans who embark on a pilgrimage to the place where their grandparents were once imprisoned during WWII. Their journey takes them to the Tule Lake
Segregation Center where they begin to understand the profound hardships and indignities their grandfathers, Tsukasa Matsueda and Wayne Osaki, had to endure. Their poignant and reflective exploration provides a unique
perspective from the eyes of youth who will one day have the responsibility of passing on the story of the Japanese American incarceration to future generations.
“My Dog Teny” is originally a heartwarming essay written by Jon’s Father, Wayne Osaki; the essay was turned into a children’s book. It is the
true story of a friendship shared by a boy and his dog amidst the Japanese American community’s forced evacuation during WWII.
Lunch following the event will be catered by the Ararat Armenian Deli.  We hope that you’ll be able to join us for this very special presentation. Mark your calendars and invite your friends! A sign up form is located in the fellowship hall or you can contact the Church office to sign up.
