Kesher Newsletter - August 2016

Dear Kesher families,

Kesher, together with our partner organizations, is proud to invite you all, to our fabulous Community Picnic on Sunday August 21st.
This family event is a wonderful opportunity to meet and greet families who are new to the Bay Area and to mingle with long time friends. 
Please join us and invite your friends.

If you know of families that just moved here this summer, please connect them with ME.  I'd love to welcome them to our community and invite them to the event.

If you 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.

As always, I am available to help you find
 programs, to connect with other Jewish families, identify fun activities and more. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you at the picnic.
