Kesher Newsletter - June 2017
 
Dear Kesher families,
 
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.   
 
Happy Summer!
 
Save the Date :
Kesher Back-to-School PICNIC!
Sunday. August 27th, More details to follow.
 
For regular updates and events' invitations join our  Kesher Families Facebook Group .
 
Enjoy!
Ronit
