Bienvenidos to the Lake Chapala Jewish Congregation!

We are so glad you found us!

No matter where you are from when you visit our Lakeside shul, you will suddenly feel like you are home, surrounded by warm and welcoming Jews.   Community is the essence of Jewish life and it is even more important here since so many of our friends and families live in other countries.  

Wherever you are on your journey – observant, reform, conservative, returning, secular, converting, questioning, the important thing is you are here, and we welcome you.

We are small, friendly, inclusive, culturally diverse, egalitarian independent shul and we believe in making Judaism available and accessible to all who seek it. We serve the Lakeside community and our doors are open to everyone including interfaith and same sex couples and families. We encourage participation from all who seek a connection to Jewish life, religious or spiritually.


We invite you to explore our website and  join our mailing list (at the bottom of the page). Learn more about our community by visiting and experiencing the shul during services, holidays and events.
