A Message from The President:

Will JCM survive past this coming Sukkot? It’s up to each of us.

The JCM culture of depending on a handful of angel donors for survival is poisonous. Our entire community must have ownership in JCM - “skin in the game” - in order for JCM to thrive. My top priority right now is membership. We are having a membership call-a-thon Tuesday evening with the goal of 100% renewal for current members. I want to follow this up with a membership campaign targeting everyone who has ever been a member of JCM. If you are reading these words, and you have not yet renewed your membership for our new fiscal year of July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020 then I am asking you to renew or re-join now. It’s easy. Surf on over to and simply click on Join.

I want to make it crystal clear to the community that we are indeed talking about survival here. If we want a full spectrum of Jewish life to survive on Maui for all the Jewish babies being born and raised here — if we want to preserve an example of Jewish life where girls can sing out loud and be counted equally — then each person needs to stretch their pocketbook and give, whatever that means for them.

If you have ever been a member of JCM during its over 20-year history, then I know you care. You care about about Jewish continuity. You care about the Jewish people. You care about Jewish survival. We the members of JCM are the stewards of our little corner of the Jewish people. If you are a Jew on Maui, if you are a Jew who has ever visited Maui and been amazed (“there are Jews on Maui???”), if you are a Jew who wants to visit Maui (isn’t that everyone???) then I’m inviting you to be part of our Maui Jewish ‘Ohana.

Part of the challenge here is that we want to know what we are giving for. To that end, I want to give each of us a clear picture of what JCM could look like. I am personally financing, along with Dr Eve Berman, a Shabbaton weekend in mid-August with a visiting rabbi I know from the mainland. His name is Rabbi Shalom Bochner. He is currently the Rabbi of a Conservative shul in Modesto, CA, where over the past six years he took a congregation in a crisis situation not unlike ours and rebuilt it into a thriving community.

Rabbi Shalom specializes in building “many pathways” into Jewish life. He is a community builder. He is solid and steady. He is a genuinely caring person. I personally think he is the ideal Rabbi model for JCM. I am bringing him here because I want our community to experience his approach. My goal is to present a clear vision of what is possible for our community, so that everyone is motivated to give generously to make that possibility a reality.

The Shabbaton is scheduled for the weekend of Tu B’Av - the “Jewish Valentine’s Day” - August 15-18. There are several different events planned: details are on our website, I ask you to plan on attending some or all parts of this very special Shabbaton. It’s going to be joyous, inspirational, uplifting, and a lot of fun!

Kol tuv,

Traveling JCM Shabbat !

"The Schechinah traveled ten journeys...from the wall to the city; and from the city to the mountain close and from the mountain to the wilderness..." 

To get more people involved in Friday night services, JCM is looking to host Shabbat services once a month in people's homes and other venues throughout the community

Get a chance to host your own Friday night service - have input on the prayers, songs, and set up. Lead sections of the prayers, and invite all those close to you, and all those who will be inspired to come.

 Thinking of hosting? Contact or Sam at
