Y.A.D. Girls

The most hip form of exercise is once again being offered to our girls – ZUMBA! Classes will take place throughout the winter on Motzei Shabbos. A recital at the completion of the season will definitely wow mothers and sisters. Other activities and programs include Sunday Socials, art classes, bowling leagues, and holiday programs.
