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. 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. Everyone is invited to attend. The services and Onegs are a great place to meet members, ask questions and learn more about our congregation.

As part of our membership drive, SLJC is forming several new Havarahs. This is a chance for new members to get to meet other congregants with similar interests or hobbies. Havurah is an important part of Jewish life where single adults and the young at heart come together to share friendship and similar interests. We are looking for Jewish senior singles to join us and to meet with others in an informal friendly setting. Our first meeting will be on January 13 at 1:30 p.m. in the Chapel Center next to the SLJC Chapel. This meeting will be a very important gathering of like-minded people exchanging ideas and information that will concern everyone attending. . Make new friends and have input on how to build our Havurah in to a huge success. Please feel free to contact me to be put on the roster and a part of the new Havurah at [email protected] or via telephone at 480-895-0974.
As a follow up to joining Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation and our prospective and new member event, new members are invited to attend a light supper on Friday, January 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the home of Wende and Allan Levy, 23821 S. Dobson Road, Oakwood, Sun Lakes. At 7:00 p.m. we will adjourn in order to attend SLJC services. As new members of the SLJC the Board wants to welcome you, have an opportunity to obtain ideas from you and give you an opportunity to meet people and become involved in our congregation.
