The Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation (SLJC) is an established reform congregation that meets at the Sun Lakes Chapel on the second Friday of the month from September through June. In July and August, a rabbinic-led Twilight Service is held in the Sun Lakes Chapel at 5:30 p.m. Services are a great opportunity to meet new people, connect with Judaism and learn. New attendees are invited to be introduced at the service, and members of the congregation connect with these attendees. Oneg Shabbats are held immediately after our services at Sun Lakes Country Club from September through June. Everyone is invited to attend. The services and Onegs are a great place to meet members, ask questions and learn more about our congregation.
SLJC is an active congregation with members of all ages who come from various communities across the world. Tradition and prayer are woven into our services by Rabbi Wiener. Our Cantor Ronda Polesky’s beautiful voice makes the services beautiful to listen to, and our choir, under the direction of Lana Oyer, makes our services memorable. Join us on the dates below to partake of these services:
February 9 at 7:30 p.m. – Shabbat Service – Adult B’not Mitzvah

All services are held in the Sun Lakes Chapel.
At our January service, we dedicated two new Torahs to SLJC. These Torah’s are smaller and lighter in weight, so all congregants will be able to participate in carrying and dressing the Torahs. Our February service will be the culmination of the yearlong study by our Adult B’not Mitzvah Class. Members of the class will participate in many sections of this special service.
SLJC has a wide range of activities, including an active Sisterhood and Men’s Club, a Friends of Israel Committee, an Adult Education program and Bar/Bat Mitzvah programs both for adults and youngsters. Opportunities abound to become involved in the SLJC community in many ways. For more information, please see our webpage at www.SLJC.org.
Rabbi Wiener will be leading our congregation in a series of inspiring adult classes this winter.
