This blog spot is meant to be a place for Deaf Jews and their friends to discuss issues that concern them. I am hearing and do not wish to be the expert on what Deaf Jews think. I want to provide a space for them to brainstorm ideas. Welcome!

My Jewish background
I hope to see you as a continuing poster. Tell us about your Jewish background and your relationship to the Deaf or Hard of Hearing community.
I am a community interpreter in Rochester, NY with 21 years of experience. I converted to Orthodox Judaism 40 years ago and although I am no longer Orthodox I have a great love for my traditions. I studied at Yeshiva Shor Yeshuv in Far Rockaway, NY for two years and continue to learn every day. I have an extensive website on Jewish interpreting and other topics at http://www.theinterpretersfriend.com
