Kesher Newsletter  
January 2018
 
Dear Kesher Families,

Happy 2018!! 

Start the new year with some tikkun olam (repairing the world). Sign up HERE for the OFJCC's Mitzvah Day, also known as the 11th  Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Day of Service, on Monday, January 15th from 8:30am - 4:30pm.

On Sunday, January 21st Noon-2:00pm, t he OFJCC and Kesher are hosting a free   JEWISH OVERNIGHT CAMPS FAIR  for families who may be interested in sending their kids or teens to a Jewish overnight camp this summer. This is a great opportunity to meet and engage with representatives from several local camps and learn about what makes each one unique.  Take this opportunity to meet the counselors, ask questions and connect with other campers. Options for scholarships will be presented.

At the end of January we will also celebrate  Tu B'Shevat, the Birthday of the Trees. A great opportunity to enjoy nature and connect with the value of being a steward of the environment. 

For regular updates and event invitations, join our  Kesher Families Facebook Group .

Enjoy!
