Please join us for the community day trip to ZAGNY Dar-e-Mehr trip Suffern, NY scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2023.
We recommend that the ZAGBA Religion class families consider coming, as ZAGNY will be holding a joint children’s class at the Dar-e-Mehr along with the ZAPANJ and ZAMWI communities who will also be attending.
ZAGBA has chartered a bus to go to the Dar-e-Mehr. Bus service is based on first come first served RSVPs. RSVPing will not hold the seat. Payment needs to be received along with the RSVP to reserve your seat.
You are welcome to bring light snacks/breakfast items/fruits to share along with some paper plates and napkins for individual use and some extra to share. ZAGBA will provide water only.
NOTE: We can only accommodate 45 people on the bus. Others are welcome to travel by car and meet us at the Dar-e-Mehr.
