Kesher Marin Newsletter--February 2016
Dear  ,

Besides all the programs for kids and families, this month offers many opportunities to step back and focus on programs for parents. And if you would like some guidance to choose a summer camp for your child, would like to talk to parents who have sent their children to a particular camp, or would like recommendations for any other programs, please feel free to contact me.

Kesher continues to provide the personal touch for families making connections to Jewish life in Marin.  Along with the monthly newsletter and our Facebook Group, Kesher connects you personally to programs and people in and around Marin that fit your interests. 
As always, scroll on for tons of events in and around Marin.
