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.

On September 9 the congregation will hold a welcome service as part of our Friday night service. This is a chance for unaffiliated individuals and individuals new to the area to learn more about SLJC and what our congregation offers. For more information on this service please contact Jeff at 480-556-1284 or you can view additional information about us on our website at
