KIDDUSH FUND
There has been a long tradition for people to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other simchas, as well as to commemorate yahrtzeits, by sponsoring the kiddush luncheon after Saturday morning services. Although some folks enjoy preparing the food themselves to bring, others would prefer to have the goodies catered in. We are fortunate to have a kosher chef, Zajar Campos, now in our community who is willing to prepare a delicious spread for us at a very reasonable cost.

If you would like to sponsor a kiddush or donate to our new Kiddush Fund, please contact the office at (415) 185-9191 or shalomsanmiguel@yahoo.com.mx  to arrange it.

Or, just click on the icon below:

First Jewish Cemetery space in all of the Bajío

CHESMA, AC is now in negotiations with the owners of the Jardines Nueva Vida cemetery in Fracc. Jardines II, SMA. We need just 15 people to purchase their spots within the next few months, and we can move forward with our plans to establish the first Jewish Cemetery space in all of the Bajío! The rates are quite reasonable, and I urge everyone reading this to seriously consider this proposal (or if you already have plans with a cemetery back in the US or Canada, to purchase a space here and donate it for burial of individuals who can’t afford it.) Burial of the dead in consecrated soil is a great mitzvah.

For more information, or to commit to purchase a space, please contact Gerardo Schwarz at geschwarz@me.com, or call the JC3 at (415) 185-9191. Thank you!!
 
The pushkes, or KKL-JNF collection boxes, have existed for many years in almost every Jewish home and educational institution in Israel and around the world. The State of Israel was built on these blue boxes. Their existence not only enabled the collection of money from hundreds of thousands of Jews to buy land in Eretz Israel, but it also was a major educational item to convey the strong link of the People of Israel to its land. 
Keren Kayemeth Mexico is giving our community the opportunity of being part of this interesting and successful project. Please come to our office and pick up yours!
