Welcome. Shalom Aleichum. E Komo Mai.

The Jewish Congregation of Maui maintains a warm, friendly environment for all Jews, regardless of personal affiliation or observance preferences. As the only synagogue on this beautiful island, we are non-affiliated, post-denominational, pluralistic, and egalitarian. Our doors are open for any Jew who wants to have a place to come worship and connect with other Jews; everyone is welcome at Beit Shalom.

Beit Shalom has a kosher kitchen and is also a Shomer Shabbat facility. We welcome you and your family with a spirit of Aloha and we will do our best to ensure everyone is comfortable and feels at home. We value the diversity and spectrum of observations in our local community and those who come to visit.

We welcome visitors to our events, educational classes, and services including our Community Passover Seder, High Holy Days services, and Chanukah Party. We love destination lifecycle events and we will help you plan the perfect celebration.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Aloha!

A Message From Our President - Summer Membership Drive

Summer Membership Drive
 A message from our President

Dear JCM Members and Community,

Thank you so much for being a member, past member, or part of the general community of Jewish Congregation of Maui. I am writing to ask that you please renew your membership, or join as a new member, today. Our Summer Membership Drive ends August 18th and tickets to High Holidays are included with your membership. 

Join or renew here: https://mauijews.shulcloud.com/join. You can also mail us a check or drop one by the synagogue.

At this time of year, as we renew our memberships, or perhaps join for the first time, we remember that it is you – our members and your contributions, both financial and service, on-island and off-island – that keep our doors open and our programs running, and allow us to be a light to our Maui community.

We have had a highly successful year transitioning to a lay-led community organization, with wonderful Shabbat services, Passover Seder, ongoing site improvements, and the excellent work of our Executive Director Kalo Yujuico and our engaged team of board members and volunteers. In the year ahead, we hope to share more moments, observances, and celebrations with you. Please join us for a pop-up social for members and new members Sunday, July 28 5-6pm, directly following our July board meeting. Come join us and let’s talk story. 

For any questions, please contact Kalo Yujuico at the number and contacts listed below.

Mahalo, Aloha, and Shalom,

Shabbat Services for Friday, July 19th

Please join us in welcoming  Rabbi Daniel Lev!


*There has been change with tomorrow's service. At 5:30pm, We will have an Oneg and Welcome Reception for Rabbi Daniel Lev. Shabbat service will follow shortly thereafter at 6:30pm.

Come out to meet Rabbi Daniel Lev, storyteller and singer for a service inspired by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach (zt”l) and Rabbi Zalman Schachter- Shalomi (zt”l). His Jewishness is “trans-denominational in nature and combines Conservative and Jewish Renewal orientations with a dash of unorthodox Chasidut and a big pinch of humor.”

Rabbi Lev will also lead a Torah study Saturday morning at 11am. Come out for an engaging conversation on Balam while enjoying bagels, lox and fresh coffee.

Saturday evening 5:30 Michael and Cynthia will host Rabbi Lev for a Havdalah service filled with songs, stories and prayers. An oneg will precede Havdalah. Bring your favorite salad!
Text 970-201-7406 for more info and address.

Doors open at 5:00pm
Services starts at 5:30pm
Kiddush to follow thereafter. 

Also join us for next week's service with Rabbi Ken Aronowitz 
Friday at 6:30pm. 

Please feel free to join us on Zoom.

Passcode: 1818
                                  Mahalo!

Peace and Strength

Dear Community Members, 

As we've witness from afar the terrible atrocities that have been committed in our beloved homeland of Israel, may the Jewish Communities here on Maui and throughout the nation stand in solidarity for the violence to stop and pray for the souls of innocent lives lost, strength and protection of those who survived and for peace.....

Holy One of blessing
We pray for the soldiers
who are called to defend the people of Israel.
Keep them safe. When they are weary
give them strength.
When they are scared give them courage.
May they find strength and faith in the days ahead.

Holy One of blessing,
We pray for the people of Israel
Who long to live under the canopy of peace.
Keep them safe. When they are threatened
protect them from harm.
When they are wounded and bereaved
grant them healing and comfort.
May they find strength and courage in the days ahead.

May our voices carry prayers of hope that the people of Israel know that they are not alone.

Give us strength and know that there is nothing more sacred than peace. Grant us Faith. Courage. Wisdom.

- Rabbi Karyn D. Kedar
