First Friday…Live!

FIRST FRIDAY

By Judith Jenya

We are resuming our monthly First Friday Live Shabbat services after a summer break. You are welcome to join us for a lively brief musical Shabbat service. We will honor the traditions of Judaism by using familiar and contemporary poetry, songs, stories, and other readings. You will be invited to join in the singing and share in the readings. We are a welcoming nondenominational eclectic Jewish congregation that shares the Sabbath on each first Friday of the month. This service has welcomed many since it began in January 2017 and hopes to welcome more people seeking a way to be part of a Jewish community that resonates with their lives today in San Miguel de Allende.

We begin our Shabbat gathering with a “meet and greet Oneg” at 5:30pm. The service itself begins at 5:45pm and concludes by 7pm (in time for your evening plans.)

Services are led by Judith Jenya, a lifelong explorer of various Jewish paths and former director of a large Reform synagogue in northern California. She has led various types of services and shared in many around the world. Judith has been the coleader of First Friday live services since January 2017 and gives the drash, or short inspirational talk, based on the Torah at each service.

Joining her is our musical soloist Jordan Saturen. Jordan enjoyed playing with a group of musicians in a monthly musical Shabbat service for over 14 years at Temple Emek Shalom in Ashland, Oregon. There he sang and played clarinet, flute, piano, and percussion. He is now living in San Miguel with his wife, who is a native of this town, and their two sons.

Both Judith and Jordan were each married in San Miguel under a chuppah—Jordan in 2000, and Judith in 2011.

We look forward to your heartfelt participation. We are building a community and making a spiritual home for nondenominational Jews and those who may not have participated in other Jewish observances and traditions in San Miguel.

First Friday…Live happens each first Friday of the month at the JC3 (the Jewish Community & Cultural Center), Las Moras 47, at the corner of Cinco de Mayo, in Colonia Guadiana.

All are welcome!
