    Posted September 21, 2014

    Please join us on Saturday, September 27, at 7pm in the Library.

    Loosely translated from the Arabic, Zerda means "a festive occasion" or "a merry evening". Here at YCDS, it is our annual fall celebration of students’ talents in a relaxed, coffeehouse setting. Zerda is an opportunity for middle and upper school students to sing a song, play an instrument, perform a monologue, recite a poem, and enjoy sharing our many gifts with the community.
