Join with fellow Kauai Jews for Shabbat Shuvah tomorrow, September 23 at 10 am at St. Michael’s. Services will be followed by a lovely Israel-inspired catered luncheon.

The Kauai Jewish Community is very pleased to have Rabbi Aryeh Azriel leading the 5778 High Holidays.

Shabbat Shuvah

This year again, as part of our observance and High Holiday services, the community will add a Shabbat Shuvah celebration. Shabbat Shuvah is one of the Jewish year’s most special Shabbats. It is sometimes called the Sabbath of return or Sabbath of repentance. This Saturday will mark a time for self-reflection, for finding our own highest good, and for casting out all that no longer serves us in the New Year just started. Shabbat Shuvah leads us to the Yom Kippur holiday which begins with Kol Nidre next Friday night. See our entire High Holidays schedule of events.

All services are held at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Hardy Street, Lihue. Map.

Non-members and visitors are most welcome and are asked to make a minimum donation of $50 per person, per service attended including Shabbat Shuvah. You are welcome to pay online or in-person. There is, according to our community’s practice, no charge to attend any of the services for our paid members.

In our tradition of tzedakah (charity), and in the spirit of aloha, please bring donations of food and money for the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry. The Kauai food pantry distributes food to about one hundred people each week, is staffed by volunteers, and is supported by donations including ours. Canned and/or non perishable food please.

Catering for the High Holidays is being provided by our caterer Sandy Jennings and Fresh from the Garden.
