Dear friends,

looooooooong time no hear or see. Summers are weird that way. However, after this weekend, everything will be back to normal (unfortunately) but it also means, that our exciting JCC Fall Programs are about to start. If you are interested in attending one or both of the classes listed below, let me know, and I can give you a German Meet Up discount. Hope to hear from you:
