The SLJC Choir and Cantor are known far and wide for the spirit and joy that fills the air each and every time they sing their melodious renditions of prayers and blessings. There are many members in the choir and they come from all expressions of faith. It may be called the Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Choir, but it consists of individuals of all faiths.
The SLJC Choir is looking for members. If you are looking for a journey that will lift you to great spiritual heights, call Lana Oyer at 602-524-5936 or please come to a rehearsal any Tuesday starting September 2 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. at the Sun Lakes Chapel Center.
