Kesher Newsletter - November 2015
 
Can you believe that we're just a month away from Hannukah?! As we are slowly getting ready for the Festival of Lights, there are plenty of fun things happening for kids and families in November: Go on a hike, "cook it forward" or try out one of the many magical Shabbat experiences listed below. Don't forget to bring your friends! As always, contact me if you have any questions.

Shabbat Shalom!
