I was raised in a synagogue on the mainland... My Babbie and Zaddie were very religious… and most of my favorite memories about growing up… would be all nights we spent at their house after services... other favorite memories about the way I grew up was when we would ditch Hebrew School with the Cantor to eat ice cream... now many many years later I realize I learned more sitting and eating ice cream with the Cantor than I did sitting in class... I tell this story because when I look and listen to the Rabbi at The Jewish Congregation of Maui I see the same love, caring, patience and knowledge to teach that I had with the Cantor I grew up with... This incredible congregation in the middle of the Pacific, has a bond stronger than you can imagine... different people from Professionals to people living in their car... it does not matter... they are all welcomed and then invited to stay longer... It is my hope that when my children are grown they will have similar memories of growing up in the Jewish faith... I think attending and being a part of The Jewish Congregation of Maui they have a very good start... Shaloha from Maui
