Thank you for your patience and understanding.

JC3/CHESMA is non-denominational, and welcomes different expressions of Jewish religious/spiritual services.


There are both a weekly Conservative minyan (Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende) and a monthly Reconstructionist/Reform/Renewal group that meet at the Center. Any member wishing to lead another style of Jewish worship at the JC3 is urged to contact the Board of Directors at their earliest convenience by using the contact information on the bottom right.


Help make the JC3/CHESMA your spiritual home away from home!


Conservative Shabbat 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, 9am


  • 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.
