Bikur Cholim

Our Bikur Cholim committee is for all members needing help with health issues. We would deeply appreciate being informed of anyone critically ill, in serious treatment, hospitalized, or otherwise in dire need of health assistance by family, friends, neighbor, or personally by the shut-in or convalescent individual.


Membership dues are a bargain at $180 USD individual or $250 USD/family: we purposely keep the dues modest (approx. USD$3.50/$4.80 per week, 49/68 cents per day) to encourage everyone to join.

Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende

Two years ago, the Traditional/Egalitarian Minyan Group under the umbrella of CHESMA, AC was accepted for affiliation with the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism, and is now a new legal unincorporated religious entity known as "Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende", giving us international recognition and paving the way for greater acceptance by the mainstream Jewish communities in Mexico.
Dear Friends,
Our ever-growing Mi Sheberach list is becoming unwieldy. There are now names we cannot identify. Please help! If you know who any of the following are, please let us know their secular name (or in one case his Hebrew name) and whether they still require a 
mi sheberach.

Yitzchak ben Gucha v'Aron
Ya'akov ben Gershon v'Lea
Ziporah bat Khisha
Avroom Zissa ben Beti
Yehudit bat Naomi
Miriam Sa'arah bat Naomi

In addition, if there are any names of those who shouldn't be on the list any longer, please let us know.

Thank you,
Carole Stone
