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 thru 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 Oneg’s are a great place to meet members, ask questions and learn more about our congregation.

SLJC announces their Adult Education classes for January 2017:

Current event topics relating to Israel, “Islamic Extremism, Terrorism: Their Origins and Intent.” This class will begin on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, and will continue on Wednesday, February 8, and the third Wednesday February 15.

The second class will be “The Proof of God.” This series will be held on the first Tuesday of March (March 7) and the third Wednesday in March (March 15th).

Note: Both these series of classes will be held by Rabbi Irwin Wiener.

Classes will be taught by Bety Dar. Classes started January 24. Classes will continue on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Please RSVP to Gail Dante.
