I invite you to come help us create the future of the Jewish Congregation of Maui. 

On August 15-18 we are hosting a visiting Rabbi for a series of events centered around Tu B’Av: the Jewish holiday of Love.  Rabbi Shalom Bochner will be visiting us from Congregation Beit Shalom of Modesto, CA.  Read more about Rabbi Shalom here.

This is the first of a series of visiting Rabbi events organized by the Rabbi Search Committee. Visiting Rabbi events are an opportunity to experience different leadership styles in our “home”, to see what inspires us and engages us in different ways.  The goal is to create a discussion about who will ultimately be a good fit to lead our diverse community into the future.

Join us for one or all of these Tu B’Av Shabbaton events:

Thursday August 15:  An informal vegetarian potluck at the home of Janine Holstein.  Meet Rabbi Shalom, sing soulful songs together, learn about Tu B’Av - the Jewish Holiday of Love.  

Friday August 16: An Evening of Nourishment for the Body and Soul .  Musical Kabbalat Shabbat followed by Shabbat Dinner and Tisch. (“tisch” is a traditional Hasidic festive Friday evening gathering to share song, words of wisdom, stories, and food)

Saturday August 17: 9:30 Shabbat Morning services.  Come experience a Shabbat morning service that will touch your soul.  Followed by Kiddush light lunch and Torah study that will engage your mind and your heart.

6:00 Family-friendly Shabbat Third Meal and Havdalah.  Stories and songs, food and fun for all ages.

If you want a voice in the future of JCM, please plan on joining us for at least one of these events.  If you want to experience what the future of JCM could look like, plan on joining us for all of them
