Kesher Newsletter - August 2017
 
Dear Kesher families,

Together with our partner organizations, Kesher is excited to invite you to our 2nd annual Community Picnic:  SUNDAY 8/27/17
This fabulous event is a wonderful opportunity to meet and greet newcomers to the South Peninsula and to mingle with long-time neighbors. There will be tons of activities for kids and parents, and local Jewish community organizations will be on hand to tell you about their offerings for families.  Mark your calendar and invite your friends!

If you know of families who are new to the area, please connect them with ME.  I'd love to welcome them to our community, share information and resources, and personally invite them to the picnic.



If you have something Jewish in mind for your child(ren) that you have not yet been able to find, let me know and I will see if there are other parents with a similar interest.

As always, I am available to help you find programs, connect with other Jewish families, identify fun activities and more. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you at the picnic!
For regular updates and events' invitations  join our  Kesher Families Facebook Group .

Enjoy!
Ronit
