Kesher Marin Newsletter High Holidays/ September 2015
 
September is here and the New Year is just around the corner. Along with the calendar below, we have an exciting offer for families who want to participate in High Holy Day observance/celebration this year. To make it easier for Kesher families who aren't already members of a synagogue to experience the upcoming High Holy Days, Kesher has put together a listing of family programs in and around Marin. 
 
To sweeten the experience, we are offering special holiday gift bags with round challah, apples, honey and more to the first 40 families who let us know that they have selected a community to celebrate High Holidays with for the very first time from the list below.
 
This offer is only available to Marin families attending a High Holy Day service or program at one of the sites below for the very first time - the first 20 gift bags will be delivered, the second 20 will be available for pick up.
