Kesher Newsletter September 2014
 
School is back in session and the High Holy Days are right around the corner, bringing a full calendar of events and activities for kids and families. ALSO, this Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, we've partnered with seven local synagogues to offer Kesher families the chance to participate in the High Holy Days with tickets for only $36 per attendee (children <18 free)! Details and a list of synagogues can be found here.
