Transcript: Greetings everyone from the ASL Shabbat Coalition.
We have been producing virtual Shabbat services using ASL, the second Friday of each month since 2020, when the COVID pandemic first began. This was made possible because of the partners and friends of the ASL Shabbat Coalition (ASC) which handled the logistics, various communities that led the services, and your donations.
The ASC is made up of the Hillel@Gallaudet, the Jewish Deaf Congress and the Jewish Deaf Resource Center.
You know, summertime on television often means re-runs or repeats of previous programs. To stay connected with you, ASC will do a similar thing for the months of July, August, and September.
For the next three months, we will email you a list of links to previously recorded videos of Shabbat services, a new brief D’var or a sermon given by a Deaf Rabbi, and video of a Shabbat song in ASL, on the 2nd Thursday each month for you to access and enjoy anytime you wish. We will also post this on Hillel at Gallaudet, JDC, and JDRC Facebook pages.
So that we can continue to offer you online ASL Shabbat programs, please consider donating to the ASC at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/JDRC.
If you would like to host an ASL Shabbat service in the Fall, beginning in November, please email us at email@example.com.
Enjoy your summer. Keep the spiritual light bright.
