Kesher Marin Newsletter--August 2016 
Dear [First Name],
This month, Kesher is proud to feature  school-year programs for children and teens - after-school programs, Sunday School, holiday series, youth groups and more.   I can also help you connect with independent programs, bar/bat mitzvah tutors and Hebrew teachers.  Have something Jewish in mind for your child(ren) that you have not yet been able to find?  Let me know and we can see if there are other parents with a similar interest. 
Kesher continues to play matchmaker between Jewish families whose children attend the same elementary school and families who live nearby.  This is a great way to make new friends!  I'm here to help connect you with nearby families with similar interests and similar-aged children. 
To connect, just email me with the name of your school and ages of your children.

Enjoy the rest of your summer,

Deborah - Kesher Marin Community Concierge
