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!

What I like to see in an interpreter
What do you like to see in an interpreter in terms of attitude, knowledge, and ASL?
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
