White Plains Zen, is affiliated with the Morning Star Zendo, in Jersey City, NJ and Inisfada Interfaith Zen Center located at the St. Ignatius Retreat House in Manhasset, NY both under the direction of Robert E. Kennedy, S.J. Roshi. Robert Kennedy, S.J., Roshi, is a Jesuit priest and Zen teacher in the White Plum lineage. He studied with Yamada Roshi in Kamakura, Japan, with Maezumi Roshi in Los Angeles, and with Glassman Roshi in New York. Glassman Roshi installed Kennedy as sensei in 1991 and conferred Inka (his final seal of approval) in 1997, making him a roshi (master).
