Bar and Bat Mitzvah

The Jewish Community of Maui offers many options for celebrating a Destination Bar/Bat Mitzvah. As a pluralistic community we provide a welcoming space for most Jewish observances and practices. Our goal is to create a ceremony that is joyous and meaningful.

Whether you live on Maui or you are visiting our beautiful island, we would be proud to share your simcha with you! As a non-affiliated synagogue, we can help you create the celebration of your dreams. Please call our office at 808-874-5397.
