WHO WE ARE

 

Shalom San Miguel de Allende, registered in Mexico as CHESMA, A.C.(una "Comunidad Hebrea En San Miguel de  Allende,  Asociacion Civil"), is an interdenominational Jewish community in San Miguel de Allende, State of Guanajuato, Mexico. We have about 120 members:  one-quarter are Mexican, the rest expatriates primarily from the United States and Canada.

 

Our motto--'One community, many journeys'--reflects our diverse backgrounds—in language, culture, and observance. We welcome each member to express his or her unique Judaism. Be it secularly, artistically, religiously, intellectually or otherwise, we urge all Jews who are interested in being a part of a Jewish entity here in el Bajío to join with us.

 

CHESMA, AC is a not-for-profit umbrella organization, which remains unaffiliated with any specific Jewish movement; our lay members lead worship and fill all the other roles needed keep the community thriving. 

 

CHESMA, AC is proud to be an associate member of the Comité Central de la Comunidad Judía de México.

 

Under the umbrella of CHESMA, A.C., the Traditional/Egalitarian Minyan Group is a member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and is a separate,  unincorporated legal religious entity under IRS section 501(c)(3) known as Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende.
