State Youth Religious Awards Program (SYRAP)

The State Youth Religious Awards Program (SYRAP) is designed to encourage the student to further his or her knowledge and understanding of the Jodo Shinshu Teachings.

SYRAP is managed by the Office of Buddhist Education (OBE), Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. BSC is pleased to host this page on behalf of OBE to provide easy access to SYRAP curriculum resources.
