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 at 7:30 p.m. 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.
This month, the congregation celebrated Rabbi Wiener’s Bar Mitzvah year in May; a special service was held and several surprises and gifts were given. Rabbi Wiener’s first Bar Matzahs attended as a special surprise. They are Lana Oyer’s grandsons. A special Oneg with homemade bake goods was held.
