This congregation is one of the friendliest communities. They are very accommodating to all visitors to the island. Their shabbat services are great, and the high holiday services top all other congregations that I have ever been part of. Tashlich services at the beach are awesome. It sure beats going to a river or creek on the mainland. If you are ever in Maui, you need to check it out! You won't be sorry.

I am just converting to Judaism and JCM is the first congregation I have been a part of. I love it! As I am trying to figure out where I fit in all of this, I have a lot of people that are willing to share their thoughts and views to help me out. I adore the Rabbi and his family. He has an interesting balance to find for our community and he is amazingly successful at it without compromising integrity. I feel very safe here and am grateful they are here on Maui.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

education, worship oppotunities, community, and friendship.

The current office staff are the Rabbi and myself, so I think they are great!

The community is warm and has an atmosphere of one large family. They care for one another and help each other out in times of need. It is truly a humbling experience to take part in any activities with this congregation.

Create such an amazing place for all jews on the island of maui. It could greatly help the community and better the lives of countless people.

Ways to make it better...

They had more money to be able to do many of the great things they have planned but need funding for.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding and more volunteers.
