Who Are HSD Students?

The last issue of JDCC News (Issue #23) had a feature article on the Hebrew Seminary of the Deaf in Skokie, Illinois who currently has seven students enrolled, of which three are deaf. In this issue, these seven HSD students share their insights into Judaism, their studies and future plans.

Deaf Female Educator On Judaism

Fleming, who was born deaf, hails from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. She explains that she was attending Gallaudet University when Rabbi Goldhamer came to visit. "I had already planned to join the consortium of universities to major in Judaism," she says, "When Rabbi came, I decided to apply to HSD and came to visit. I really liked what I saw when I went to HSD. I liked the idea of Jewish Deaf education and being able to work inside the Jewish Deaf community after graduation."


Deaf Jews In Sports

Brad, a senior at California School for the Deaf - Riverside, is a stand out baseball player on the school team. As the team's second baseman, he hit .520 and .378 in the past two seasons, twice achieving Silent News Deaf Baseball All-American honors.

There is much more to baseball than just posting up gaudy batting stats, and Brad knows it. He absorbed all the baseball lessons he could from his father, Lou, an avid baseball fan, and an involved parent. Because Brad is short in size, he had to outperform bigger players in intangibles that do not show up in the box scores - stealing, sliding, bunting, throwing to the right base, backing up other infielders, hitting into the holes, etc. In other words, getting the uniform dirty.
