With approximately 400 members, Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation, under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Irwin Wiener and Cantor Ronda Polesky, is one of the largest Reform synagogues in the Chandler area. Services are held once a month, on the second Friday of the month, beginning at 7:00 PM, at The Sun Lakes Chapel, located on Sun Lakes Boulevard. In addition, during the summer Twilight Services are offered. The prayer book in use is Gates of Prayer, and most services are enhanced with the voices of the congregations choir, under the direction of Lana Oyer. Services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat, where members enjoy a tasty nosh and the opportunity to socialize with old friends and make new friends.

Holidays are marked by community events including a community Passover Seder

There are several committees that serve out members, including the Ritual Committee, Caring Committee, Friends of Israel Committee and the Chapel Board. A congregation newsletter, The Shpiel, is sent to all members ten times a year.
