Welcome to the new San Miguel de Allende Jewish Cultural and Community Center!
Thanks to the moral and financial support from many support, we are extremely proud to present the new home of CHESMA, AC and the Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende (the Conservative minyan group that meets there), located in the Calle de las Moras # 45 and 47 (corner of Calle Cinco de Mayo) in Colonia Allende / Guadiana.
After years of meeting in the Hotel Quinta Loreto, the board of CHESMA, AC decided to take the leap to establish a more visible and permanent in our beloved people making presence. We are no more a "Wandering Jew"!
We bought the old building of Feed the Hungry, AC property which perfectly suited our needs: we now have a large prayer hall and social facilities, a wonderful Jewish library, classroom and boardroom , as well as the offices of CHESMA, AC *. We plan to open a bookstore, a cafeteria, Judaica shop and an area for games and children's learning in the coming years.
Only you are missing!

Our administrative assistant, Edith, will be delighted to welcome you and show you our center (9-5, Monday through Thursday and 9-3 on Friday). Or come take part in KSSMA's traditional/egalitarian Conservative Shabbat Morning Service (Saturday morning 9:00 -11: 30).
