JERUSALEM - When Kyle Edenzon showed up for his first day of Hebrew school as a young boy, his parents asked the teacher to place their hard-of-hearing son in the front row to better help him understand the lessons.

"But as soon as they left, the teacher put me in the back and basically said, `You’re on your own,'" said Edenzon, 21, of Northridge, Calif. "I was maybe 5 years old and cried hysterically. I didn’t go back till I was 11 or 12.”
