Fundraising is an integral part of the school, organizing community events and raising money for the operating budget and for tuition assistance. Fundraising events include: our annual Kesher Erev Ivrit (evening of Hebrew) in May/June, Book Fair, Shabbat dinners and sales of Kesher CD, t-shirts and holiday ritual objects and some years we have a Kesher auction. The major fundraising comes from the annual appeal drive each year. Hopefully you have received our appeal letter already. Please send as generous a contribution as possible, though any size gift, big and small, will be very much appreciated. Kesher depends on your support and appreciates your help.
