We welcome visitors at all our services and make a point of introducing them. 2500 Pali Highway is one block makai (toward the ocean) of Temple Emanu-el, the reform synagogue at 2550 Pali Highway. Don’t get confused.

To get to 2500 Pali Highway by car from Waikiki, take the Interstate(!) H1 Freeway west until you reach the Pali Highway (exit 21-B, Pali Highway/HI-61 N). While going north on the Pali Highway, get into the left lane and make a U-turn at Jack Lane (at a light very shortly after the Wyllie Street overpass and exit), then make the next right onto Niolopa Place and then into the Unitarian Church’s parking lot (second driveway on left). You may park on the grass.

To get there on TheBus (city bus), take the number 4 from Waikiki going toward “Nuuanu-Dowsett” or the number 8 bus to Ala Moana Shopping Center (runs very frequently) and transfer to a number 55, 56, 57, or 57A. Get off the bus at Akamu Place and carefully cross the highway at the light. Walk one block back toward Waikiki to Niolopa Place. For more information, call TheBus at (808) 848-5555 (daily from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.).
