Kesher Camp

An article on the Kesher Camp appeared in the Jewish Week of Queens, N.Y. on August 2nd by Jon Kalish. Eight families participated in the camp. Kesher is a Hebrew word which means, 'Communication'. Unfortunately, there were no deaf leaders involved in this process, it was directed by a hearing person, Marcia Tilchin, a rabbinical student at Jewish Theological Seminary and she was involved with the National Theatre of the Deaf in 1988 to 1990 which sparked her interest in working with the Jewish deaf.

New Directory of Services for Deaf Jews

Erez Miller, a doctoral candidate at Boston College, and Arlene Fruchter has printed the 'Second Directory of Educational and Religious Services to Deaf Jews.' They surveyed about 250 organizations across the U.S. to collect information about types and the extent of religious and educational services available to Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and adults. After numerous revisions and corrections, they recently completed the directory. Included are the listings of 87 organizations across 17 states (plus Washington DC) that provide such services to Deaf Jews. They have also included a comprehensive bibliography of articles, books and other materials about Deaf Jews. They are interested in getting this information out to as many organizations and individuals as possible so that Deaf people can find which services are accessible to them in their (or nearby) community. You can purchase this directory for $8.60. Make check payable to Arlene Fruchter, and mail to her at 86 Griggs Rd., Brookline, MA 02146.
