The Jewish Congregation of Maui consistently offers a wide range of opportunities to connect to Torah, holidays, Judaism, Hebrew, culture, language, religion, community and spirituality. Rabbi Glickman and his wife and family are true gifts to the local and worldwide community. What a pleasure to know that when I visit Maui I can participate on a personal letter. The weekly e-mail is worth reading, too. SO many benefits to so many people.

i have been the welcome recipient of the weekly drash and sense of community offered by the Congregation for the past several years. it has been uplifting and a connection to Maui and the islands, combining my religious and love of nature into one. it has caused me to think, contribute, expand my beliefs and experiences in an attempt to bring that sense to my life here in California.

My experience has been very positive. Rabbi Glickman is a knowledgeable and inspiring steward. The members are very welcoming, supporting, taking interest in newcomers and Maui visitors, genuinely, with open heart. Beit Shalom offers a wonderful warm foothold of Judaism on the Hawaiian soil, a Jewish "island" within the tropical paradise island, where not only locals but also visitors can keep their connection with the tradition, have a home away from home. I, personally, not only attended the Shabbat services, but also was "hooked" into participating with Israeli Dancing, Torah learning sessions, Hebrew lessons and Passover celebrations. I found it time and again, meaningfully, spiritually enriching to be able to connect with my faith during vacation time. My guess is, it is not only me, but many Jews may find less time during their busy "mainland" lives for their Judaism and spirituality. Because of Jewish Congregation of Maui, I am looking forward to my vacations not only for recharging the batteries needed in the hustle and bustle of everyday worries and commitments but also for a spiritual replenishment.

A gem of a jewish congregation. One of the few I have ever encountered where a traditional rabbi welcomes all comers and encourages them to worship "as their heart dictates".
