JDCC wishes you and your family a very happy healthy new year. May the year bring us all good news. As we say in hebrew, L'Shana Tovah which means Happy New Year.

We would love to hear from those that had a new experience this year whether it be a new Temple with an interpreter provided, built a Sukkah or carried the Torah on Simchat Torah. Share your experiences with us, the Jewish Deaf Community! Shalom...

Thanks to Ruth & James Stern of N.J. for taking photos of the cemetery in N.Y.

Dear Sharon,

I wish to thank whomever made a donation that enabled to attend the JDCC's 5th anniversary banquet. It was nice being in the company of friends. Thanks again.

Dear Sharon,

Thank you ever so much for the plaque which you presented to me. It already has a place of honor on the wall in my office. I am glad that you have found me to be supportive of your organization. I really am.

I wish you much success in the future. With best wishes from house to house. Most sincerely,

Rabbi Abner Weiss, Ph.D. Beth Jacob Congregation, Beverly Hills, CA

Dear Sharon,

Based on reading comments and articles about the recent JDCC's 5th anniversary event, we want to say "Mazel Tov" to your whole team (not only your committee but also all those who came to this special event) for the great success. We were in Buffalo, NY on that date to help celebrate Leslie's parents' 50th wedding anniversary and we are sorry we had to miss this JDCC event. Hope there will be the 6th anniversary event. Shalom!

Paul & Leslie Levenson - Granada Hills, CA

Hi Sharon and David & Family,

I got your JDCC Newsletter, thanks! And I wanted to congratulate on you Sharon for succeeded in your dream of having the JDCC. I'm sure your people are grateful to have you. I'm impressed with the newsletter! Keep up the good work!

Merry Jo Llarena - West Hills, CA

Dear Sharon & David,

Congratulations to you for the inspiring newsletter which is full of wonderful Jewish related issues. This enables us Jewish deaf people to appreciate our Jewish heritage. Mazel Tov upon doing a great job. Thank you, friend.

Dear Sharon,

This is just a note to tell you how happy I am with the JDCC NEWS. I feel very much like the Fairhope, Alabama, lady who wrote to you to say that this magazine kept her in touch with Jewish life where it is lived most richly and fully.

Even though I am never going to be part of the website and Jewish webnet life, because I don't have a computer and I really don't expect to have one. I am interested in hearing from those who do. And I also hope that you do not disappear into the web or the screen. P.S. I don't know how many other people are interested in this, but I would be interested to see the development of new Jewish Signs.

Joanne Greenberg - Golden, CO

This is the very first www site for the Jewish Deaf. I wonder if they can incorporate HAD, Jewish Congress, etc to this growing Jewish Deaf network. I don't think HAD has a www site but someday they will. With convenience and kindly regards.
