Kesher Marin Newsletter--April/Passover, 2017
 
 

Passover begins at sundown on April 10th! How will you celebrate? In addition to community Passover programs, seders and resources, this newsletter lists lots of other exciting events all throughout April. I am happy to chat by phone or meet in person to help you find the right fit for your family. If you'd like a personal recommendation, especially for Passover seders or tips on celebrating at home, please  contact me .
 
Kesher is always looking for ways to help you do Jewish your way. With that goal in mind, we have four more resources for you.

Got Haggadot?
 
The Jewish Community Library makes it easier to host a seder by lending sets of Passover haggadot, resources and more matched to your unique needs. They have several versions perfect for families with young children or school age children or teen. I am happy to deliver haggadot when delivering the Passover gifts on April 5-7.  Click here to view the choices and reserve.
