Kesher Marin Newsletter--June/Shavuot, 2017
 
 

Summer is just around the corner and we are starting off with listing the Shavuot celebrations along with June and camp programs in the Kesher newsletter.  Click here to visit our friends at BimBam to learn more about Shavuot, the  festival that celebrates the harvest of the first wheat, and now signifies the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai. Whether you eat blintzes, cheesecake and ice cream, go to synagogue, or study all night, there is something for you.  

As the days get longer I remain available to help you find what you are looking for in our Jewish community including events and programs for summer or fall, the right religious school for your child's next steps in Jewish education or connections with other Jewish families at your child's school, or in your neighborhood. If what you are looking for doesn't exist, I would love to help inspire new possibilities-let's collaborate to plan a Shabbat picnic in the park, a toddler trek, interfaith meet-up, or whatever you have in mind.  

Finally - THANK YOU for joining our community on Facebook.  Invite your friends to join, too!  This is where you will find the latest programs posted and where you can communicate with other Kesher Marin families.  


Happy Summer!
