CHESMA, AC and the JC3 are non-denominational, and welcomes different expressions of Jewish religious/spiritual service.


At present, there is both a Conservative minyan (Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende) and a Reconstructionist/Alternative group that meet at the Center. Any member wishing to lead another style of Jewish worship at the JC3 is urged to contact  Ritual Committee chairperson Dan Lessner at their earliest convenience. 


Help make the JC3 your spiritual home away from home!


Regular Worship Services-  

CHESMA, AC is pleased to be able to offer the following lay-led religious services:


  • Conservative Shabbat Shacharit/Morning prayers with Torah service (Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende, affiliated with the USCJ)
    Saturdays, 9 AM

Join us for a joyous song-filled worship service, led by Dan Lessner, our spiritual leader, in traditional/egalitarian Conservative style.

Following this tradition, we need a minimum of ten Jewish men or women to read from the Torah, chant Kaddish and other key prayers. Help us fulfill this mitzvah by being a part of our minyan. Our prayer book is fully translated and transliterated phonetically into both English and Spanish.



Greet the Sabbath with us with our popular monthly Friday night get-togethers at the JC3. See Calendar for details.

  •  Monthly Reconstructionist Friday Night Service and potluck dinner with Judith Jenya, and featuring Maxine Grayboyes: 1st Friday of every month

Come celebrate a festive, musical Friday night English-dominant service and meal. Please contact Edith at 415-185-9191 or via email for more information or to RSVP.
