Q. Is this program designed for religiously committed girls or non-affiliated girls or intellectual girls or girls who just want to have a good time together or girls at risk or adult women or…?

Q. Who are you?
A. Moriya was founded in 2014, under the auspices of the Kollel of Ottawa. In 2015, we moved to Jacksonville, FL, to teach in its Jewish day school, and Moriya became an independent organization. In 2018, we moved to Providence, Rhode Island. It's a special community and a great place!
