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. 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.
SLJC is an active congregation with members of all ages who come from various communities across the world. Tradition and prayer are woven into our services by Rabbi Wiener. Our Cantor Ronda Polesky’s beautiful voice makes the services beautiful to listen to and our choir, under the direction of Lana Oyer, makes our services memorable. Join us on the dates below to partake of these services.
