The Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation will celebrate Chanukah on December 11.

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.

The Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation invites everyone to come to our December 11 Shabbat service at 7:00 p.m. where we will celebrate the holiday of Chanukah. In honor of Chanukah a special Oneg will follow the service. This service will also honor our Israel Committee and Hillel.
