    Join us in this whirlwind tour of 500 years of a Jewish presence in Mexico, from the Conquista to modern times. Dan Lessner, Lay Religious Leader of Kehilla Shalom San Miguel de Allende and founding member of the Comunidad Hebrea En San Miguel de Allende (CHESMA, AC) will be your guide. Buckle up, it will be a brisk ride—from the Spanish Inquisition and autos de fe in the Alameda Park to the “gilded ghettos” of Polanco and Tecamachalco in CDMX—but a fascinating visit nonetheless to learn a bit about the tiny, but quite influential, Mexican Jewish communities.

    Midday Rotary is now meeting again live and in person at the Hotel Real de Minas (Sala 4) at 9:30 AM on Tuesdays. Meetings are also online via Zoom.
