Kesher Newsletter - June 2016

Dear Kesher families,

For many of us, May has been a hectic month with events and celebrations marking the end of the school year. I hope June brings you relaxation and family fun!
 
For those of you who'll be staying in the neighborhood, we have lots going on in our community.
 
Check out our BRAND NEW ONLINE DIRECTORY  - We'd love your feedback about our new website and, if you have any Jewish/Israeli organizations to recommend for the directory, feel free to let me know.
 
The feedback and input you provide helps us to improve Kesher, and the data we collect in our Survey will also benefit our community partners by providing understanding of what families like yours want in the South Peninsula. Please take the time to complete this 3 minute Survey now. Thank you!
 
As always, I remain available during the summer to help you find programs for next year, connect with other Jewish families, identify fun activities and more. 
 
If you know a family who is new to the area, please give them my phone number and email. 
 
Please spread the word about our KESHER Facebook group. The more parents join, the more active our group becomes. If you aren't already part of the group, join today and invite your friends!





Enjoy!
