Our Mission


The mission of Jewish Community Services of Hawaii is to support and enhance the quality of life for those in need of help in the Hawaii Jewish community by providing appropriate social services.

Jewish Community Services 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.

Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program.

This “donate-at-checkout” campaign runs September 1 -30  at every Foodland or Sack N Save grocery store.

When you use your Maika‘i card at the checkout register, you can make a donation to Jewish Community Services at the same time.

JCS’s code number is #77215

Your donation will be added to your grocery purchase total. The donation amount and name of our organization will appear on your customer receipt. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of your donation, so JCS receives even more! Donor names will not be released to organizations, therefore to properly acknowledge your gift and credit your donation we’ll need your receipt. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Mahalo for your support!
