ZM Jok Um: How do we respond to hate?

Our Zen Center’s Guiding Teacher, Zen Master Jok Um (Ken Kessel), gave a talk at an interreligious group in New Haven CT. The group meets once a month for part of a year and visits member places of worship and shares thematic presentations. This year’s theme was responding to hate crimes against places of worship. New Haven Zen Center was the first meeting. The convener, Vanessa Avery, transcribed the talk ZM Jok Um gave — the link is below.
