Kesher Marin Newsletter--January, 2017 
 
 

I hope you and your family had fantastic Hanukkah celebrations. If you received a Kesher Hanukkah gift bag, please click here to complete a short survey.

Happy 2017!  The January guide has many opportunities for connecting with Jewish life in and around Marin.   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.


Happy Hanukkah!
