Our Mission


The mission of Jewish Community Services of Hawaii is to support and enhance Jewish life in Hawaii through communication, coordination and provision of appropriate social services to those in need.




Jewish Community Services of Hawaii opened its doors in 1998 to fill the need for Jewish social services after the Jewish Federation of Hawaii, the original parent organization, was no longer in existence.


Since then, JCS has been focused on meeting the needs of people within the greater Hawaii Jewish community, serving all of the islands. Working together with myriad groups, JCS fosters a healthy collaboration of people who care about people in need.


If you or someone you know in our community is in need of assistance, or if you are joining our community and looking for guidance, please write to us,

call (808) 258-7121, or send us an e-mail at admin@jcs-hi.org and we'll try to help.
