Kesher Marin Newsletter--February, 2017 
 
 

February is full of opportunities to "do Jewish." Celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Birthday of the Trees is a great way to enjoy nature and connect with the value of being a steward of the environment. Join a celebration (see below) or create your own using the PJ Library Tu B'Shevat resources. For support finding connections with events and people that fit your family,  contact me!

If you still haven't, please join our Facebook group where you can post, share and stay up to date on opportunities in our community. 

Pay it forward and share this newsletter with any friends who aren't yet connecting to the awesome opportunities for families in Marin.


Enjoy!
