Kesher Marin Newsletter--July 2016 
 
Hi Kesher Families,

Summer is heating up and I hope you are enjoying some relaxing down time outdoors! Fewer Jewish events for families in the summer means more space to join a Kesher meet-up!  Check out the calendar below!   
 
To help you connect with new friends in your school or neighborhood, I am building out our database. To make good connections, I need your help! Please CLICK HERE to share more details about your family. NO CONTACT INFORMATION IS EVER SHARED WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION!  
 
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. 
 
THANK YOU for joining our community on Facebook. Invite your friends to join, too! 



Happy Summer!
