Kesher Newsletter May 2015
 
Celebrate this great weather with a bonfire, some ice-cream, a beautiful hike or a fun BBQ! Lag Ba'Omer and Shavuot are coming up and there are plenty of wonderful ways to celebrate with your family and friends. If you know of families that are moving here this summer, please connect them with KESHER. I'd love to welcome them to our community and get them plugged in. 

For more updates and to connect with other local families, join our Facebook group or come to our new monthly KESHER Moms Morning Coffees Meetings.
