Welcome to JC3/CHESMA — San Miguel de Allende's Jewish Cultural and Community Center


JC3/CHESMA is non-denominational and encompasses spiritual, educational, social and cultural programming. It is NOT a synagogue. 


After years of meeting in the Hotel Quinta Loreto, thanks to community support, the Board of Directors was able to establish a more visible and permanent home. You can find us in San Miguel at Calle de las Moras #47

(corner of Calle Cinco de Mayo). 


We have a lovely large prayer/social hall, a wonderful Jewish library, a classroom and a boardroom.


Only you are missing!


Please visit JC3/CHESMA. Discover what we offer and let us know what you would like to see and do. Make our cultural community Center your JC3 Center. 


If you are looking for religious or spiritual services, KSSMA's traditional/egalitarian Conservative Shabbat Morning Service (Saturday morning 9:00–11:45) may be exactly what you want. If you prefer a unique religious experience, let us know. Friday nights liberal gathering may offer the solution that you are looking for.


If you would like to volunteer to teach a class or run a program, etc., or if you are interested in contributing financially to help the JC3 to survive and grow, please click here to send us an email with your interests and contact information.
