Something new: A book club!
We are happy to announce that the JC3 of San Miguel has formed a Jewish Book Group, which will meet in people’s homes to discuss books of topical Jewish interest.  

The books we will be reading for the next few months, in order, are:
    

June 23 - To the End of the Land by David Grossman
July 21 - Letters to My Palestinian Friend by Yossi Klein Halevi
August 18 - Apples from the Desert by Savyon Liebrecht
September 22 - As a Driven Leaf by Milton Steinberg


This group will meet at 1pm on the third Sunday of each month, unless otherwise indicated.

Please RSVP ASAP to Kayla Fine, who will contact you with further details:
              katfine1129@yahoo.com or 55 7609 1521
 
We are limiting the number of members to 12, which is an optimal number for discussion groups.

On June 16th at 11am we inaugurated our new Jewish cemetery -- the only one in El Bajio! There is still special pricing for those who choose to purchase a single or double plot at this time, but after July 1st, the prices will increase. We offer not only plots, but niches for cremains.

 

If you wish to arrange to purchase a plot, you may go directly to the offices of Jardines Nueva Vida, located across from the Cruz Roja (Red Cross) on the Libramiento.

 

 

The Jardines Nueva Vida cemetery is located in one of the neighborhoods behind Liverpool, just off the road to Alcocer (about a mile past the Hospital MAC, turn left onto a street named, appropriately "No Me Olvides"; JNV is the second cemetery on your right).  Signs will be posted to guide you.

DEAD SEA SCROLLS LECTURE

On August 29th, the noted Dr. Adolfo Roitman, curator of the museum in Jerusalem that houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, will visit the JC3 to share some of the Scrolls' fascinating history with us.

 

More information to come.
