Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation

Joyce Spartonos

With the New Year celebration already behind us (where does the time go?), the Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation is continuing its regularly-scheduled monthly services on the second Friday of every month at 7 p.m. at the Chapel in Sun Lakes.

We are a Reform Congregation that offers something for everyone. You name it, and we have it; from Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, baby-naming ceremonies, a very active single group, etc. If you are unaffiliated, we’d love for you to join us at a service so you can see for yourself what we’re all about. Come hear the sermons of our wonderful Rabbi, Dr. Irwin Wiener, and delight in the music from our outstanding choir, led by Lana Oyer, and our Cantor Ronda Polesky.

This month’s service on Nov. 8 will pay homage to our veterans in honor of Veterans Day, reflect on the upcoming Thanksgiving Day holiday, and we’ll have a baby-naming ceremony, as well.

In addition to all of this, the Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation offers an Adult Education program. On Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020, and Tuesday, March 24, 2020, there will be an ecumenical panel discussing rites of passage among Jewish, traditional Christian, Native American, Hispanic, and Muslim cultures. These will be free and open to the public.

And we were so proud to learn that our esteemed Rabbi Dr. Wiener will be teaching a class at NAILS on Mystical Nature of Humans on Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The dates are Nov. 6, 13, and 20. On Nov. 6, the topic will be Pain Experiences—real or imagined, and fears—how to face them and possibly eliminate them. On Nov.r 13, the discussion will be Miracles—created by whom? The topic for Nov. 20 will be Love-Origins-Transforming need to love.

So, there it is, all laid out for you. As the old saying goes, try us, you’ll like us!
