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.
The Jewish Congregation of Maui welcomes all Jews from all walks of religious life from non observant to orthodox. The Rabbi is the most amazing person I have ever met in my life. 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.
