Kesher Marin Newsletter--June 2016

Hi Kesher Families,

The school year is coming to an end and summer is just around the corner. I remain available to help you find what you are looking for in our Jewish community including events and programs for next year, connections with other Jewish families at your child's school, camp, synagogue or in your neighborhood. If what you are looking for doesn't exist, I would love to help inspire new possibilities.

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 Marin. Thank you to everyone who has already completed the survey.  Please take the time to complete this 3 minute Survey now if you have not yet done so.  Thank you!

This month we've published the June and July calendars together.  You will receive another message in July with a modified calendar with any added programs.  If you have ideas for a meet-up that you would like to host with Kesher, just let me know and we can put something together.

Finally - THANK YOU for joining our community on Facebook.  Invite your friends to join, too!

Happy Summer!
