Kesher Newsletter - January 2017
 
Dear Kesher Families,

Happy 2017!! Start the new year with some Tikkun Olam! Sign up  HERE for the OFJCC's Mitzvah Day, 10th  Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Day of Service on Monday, January  16th, from 8:30-12:30. 
 
For the planners among us, summer camp registration is around the corner. Kesher and the OFJCC will host representatives from overnight Jewish camps at our  JEWISH OVERNIGHT CAMPS FAIR  on Sunday January 15th, from 4:00-6:00PM.

Take this opportunity to learn about each camp, meet the counselors, ask questions and connect with other campers.  Explanations in  Hebrew  will also be provided and opportunities  for scholarships will be presented.
 
For regular updates and events' invitations join our Kesher Families Facebook Group.

Enjoy!
Ronit
