Kesher Newsletter - November 2016
 
Dear Kesher Families,

I hope you all had a great time with friends and family during the High Holidays!

To the families who participated in the  Kesher High Holiday Day promotion , we hope you had a great experience. We would love to hear your feedback in order to better serve the community and our partners next year.

This November is a month without any holidays other than Shabbat. It is a great timing to  start making plans for summer 2017.  URJ Camp Newman, the local Reform summer camp in Santa Rosa, and Camp Ramah, the Northern California Conservative camp on Monterey Bay, have already begun registration.  Camp Tawonga, the local JCC camp outside of Yosemite begins registration now for specialty programs and in December for other camps.  One Happy Camper Scholarships   are also available for first time campers.

If there are opportunities you're looking for and not finding, please feel free to contact me  I can connect you with existing options in the Jewish community and explore creating new ones.  As always, check out our Kesher Facebook group for the most up-to-date postings.

Enjoy!
Ronit
