A Special First Friday Live! Shabbat Service


By Judith Jenya

Join us for our First Friday Live! Kabbalat Shabbat service. Friday, April 6 at the JC3, will be the last celebration for the season.

We begin at 5:30pm with a “meet and greet” time with refreshments. The Shabbat service begins at 5:50pm.

The service is a lively, brief musical Shabbat service. We honor the traditions of Judaism by using familiar songs and readings. We also include contemporary poetry, songs, stories, and other readings.

This evening will also include a yizkor, or a service of remembrance.

Services are co-led by Maxine Graboyes and me. Graboyes is an experienced Cantorial soloist who led services for 23 years in Vail, Colorado. She has been a professional singer on Broadway and beyond, bringing grace and enthusiasm to the music. You will want to join in song with her.

I am, an accomplished inspirational speaker and explorer of many streams of Judaism, co-leads the service, taking on the role of drashoneit, or the person who gives a short, meaningful talk based on the Torah. I am the former director of a large Reform synagogue in northern California. Jordan Saturen will join us as a special musical guest.

Yizkor services are held four times a year: Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot.

We renew and strengthen the connection between ourselves and our loved ones as we recite the

Yizkor prayers, remembering our loved ones. We will read their names and acknowledge donations to charities given in loved ones’ names. It is also customary to light a memorial candle at home to embrace their memory.

We look forward to sharing this uplifting service with you as we are building a community and creating a spiritual home for nontraditional Jews and those who may not have participated in other Jewish observances in San Miguel de Allende.

We gather at the Jewish Cultural and Community Center (JC3) at 47 Las Moras in Colonia Guadiana

at the corner of Las Moras and Cinco de Mayo.
