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 mechitza 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.
