Weekly Services

Beit Shalom uses the Sim Shalom siddur published by the Rabbinical Assembly of America as the basis for our services. The services have a traditional Hebrew structure, and center around the beauty of the classic Hebrew liturgy, the spiritual power of prayer, and communal song, interspersed with explanations and readings in English for the comfort of those who are not proficient in Hebrew. We provide mixed seating as well as a mehitza area for those who prefer to daven with more gender privacy. We are non-affiliated. Service styles and details may differ by week as we strive to accommodate the religious needs of all Jews on Maui (see weekly schedule for specific davening style).

Unless specifically noted otherwise we are a “traditional-egalitarian” minyan.

Community participation is highly encouraged. If you have a song you would like to introduce, or a prayer that speaks to you, or are able to lead services, your contribution is welcome.

Here is our General Schedule (times are approximate – worshippers are welcome to come for all or part of the services):

Friday Evenings: 5:45- 7:00

5:45 Preparatory singing and guitar music (depending on day - see weekly schedule)

6:00 Candle lighting

6:05 Kabbalat Shabbat/Maariv

7:00 Kiddush (light refreshments/see schedule for dates where a sit-down meal will be served)

Shabbat Day: 60-minute service with meditation, prayers and Torah Study.

Come start your Shabbat day of rejuvenation with a short, focused service that includes a guided meditation, songs, prayers, and a Torah Study. Open for everyone, with interludes, explanations and insights in English.

9:30-9:45 Shabbat Guided Meditation

9:45-10:00 Communal Singing

For those who wish to stay, we will have a communal Torah reading and musaf if there is a minyan.
