Kesher Marin Newsletter--August, 2017
 
 

New families love making friends with other Jewish families through Kesher!  In July, Kesher facilitated a wonderful Shabbat Picnic meet-up with families in the San Anselmo/Fairfax/Ross/San Geronimo Valley area. If you would like to connect with this group or create a group in your own area,  just let me know and I am happy to make the arrangements.   Kesher continues to play matchmaker between Jewish families whose children attend the same school or families who live nearby.  I'll be sure to contact you for permission before sharing your information.  To connect, just email me and include your zip code, the name of your school and ages of your children.

Next month, Kesher will feature school-year programs for children, teens and families - after-school programs, Sunday School, holiday series, outdoor adventures, youth groups and more. In the meantime, you might want to celebrate summer at the ballpark with one of the Jewish Heritage Nights:  the  Oakland A's on Tuesday August 15  and the  Giants on Monday, August 21 .  Check the calendar links below or visit the websites of your favorite Jewish organizations for tickets.

Finally, if you have not already done so, check out our newly launched Kesher website that now includes Marin:  http://www.kesherfamilyconcierge.com.  For regular updates and events invitations, join our  Kesher Marin Facebook Group .

 

Enjoy your Summer!
