Who We Are

Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel and tell them: you shall be unique, for I, God, am unique! (Vayikra 19:2) 

 

Jewish Congregation of Maui (JCM) Identity Statement 

An Independent Egalitarian Pluralistic Community for Jewish Life 

Jewish life comes in many forms. JCM is a beacon for that diversity. Since our founding, JCM has intentionally been unaffiliated with any particular Jewish denomination. We deeply respect and celebrate our shared values, culture, and history which unite us with a tribal sense of family, while simultaneously recognizing that our diversity is our strength. JCM affirms that every Jew is a vital part of an inclusive community. Everyone is welcomed. This affords the opportunity for members to understand and develop familiarity with a variety of Jewish practices and beliefs, some of which may differ from their own. JCM holds that this is key to the continuation of Jewish life into the 21st century and beyond. 

Beit Shalom: Our Home 

We cherish our Beit Knesset/House of Gathering as the Center of our community and a sanctuary space where Jews and their friends can come to recharge, socialize, study and pray. It shelters a welcoming, vibrant environment where celebrations of all aspects of Jewish life and the study of Torah inspire those who enter to share in our common bond with the Jewish people, Jewish heritage, and Jewish traditions. 

What We Do:

JCM is a full-service synagogue. We hold weekly services and perform all lifecycle events. With equal importance, we hold social and cultural events such as cooking classes and a weekly mahj game.

We are a diverse community, and we work tirelessly to find a way for everyone to find their place in our shul. If there is something we are not offering that you would like to have, please reach out to Ellyn at admin@mauijews.org to see how we can make it happen. 

JCM holds the space for all things Jewish on Maui. We want to help you live the Jewish life of your choosing. It is not for us to tell you how to be Jewish, it is for us to support you in any way  we can.

Where We Are

JCM is located on the South-side of Maui in Kihei. We are easily acceddible from most parts of the island, and about 15 minutes from the Kahului Airport. Our shul is across from a lovely beach for Shabbat on the Beach, Beach clean up days, Tashlich, mikva, etc. 

Our shul is a comfortable and homey, and you will feel at ease and welcoemd from the moment you step inside.
