With your support, JDRC has partnered with two organizations in the wider Jewish community to offer courses to the Jewish Deaf community.
This year, we successfully piloted a course in partnership with Academy for Jewish Religion to train ASL interpreters, Certified Deaf Interpreters and Deaf prayer leaders to better understand and interpret Jewish liturgy. Those who participated in this course are now better equipt to give congregations a richer experience in a variety of Jewish settings.
For the last two years, we partnered with Union for Reform Judaism in offering a course called Introduction to Judaism in ASL. This course was made available to Jewish Deaf and hard of hearing individuals, Deaf Jews by choice and Deaf Jews seeking conversions.
Please help us to continue with these initiatives and more! Your donation of any amount will greatly help JDRC continue to partially subsidize these and other courses so that Deaf and hard of hearing students can fully participate. To donate, please visit this link.
