Kesher Newsletter - February 2016
 
Hope you had a wonderful Tu B'Shvat! 
If you weren't able to attend the Jewish Overnight Camp Fair, we've included a special Overnight Summer Camps section at the bottom of this newsletter. If you want more info, (or if you just want to meet other local moms) join me at our upcoming Kesher Mom's Morning Coffee on February 4th from 9:30 - 11:00 am.  Bring your friends!

See you there!
