Jewish Deaf Education

How do Jewish deaf children get a formal Jewish education? My husband David and I for example, have two deaf sons. Which school should we send them to? Is there a such program? So I decided to do some research and this article will fans on Jewish Deaf Education around the country.

Being Jewish and deaf is a double dilemma. It is difficult trying to be Jewish and meet your communication needs at a Jewish day school. No special education programs are currently available for Jewish deaf students in the Greater Los Angeles area. Many of us were taught the oral method, so resources were even more limited. Sunday School at Temple Beth Solomon of the Deaf in Arleta was always the only option. Sign language is used there.


Deaf Jews In Sports

Olympics' Only Jewish Deaf Trackster
Vyacheslav Skomorokhov
image During the mid-sixties and early part of the seventies, one of the world's best hurdlers (both deaf and hearing) was a deaf Russian, and also was a Jew. The name Vyacheslav Skomorokhov may strike a familiar tune with followers of deaf track and field. They will instantly recall the fluidity and smoothness of his hurdling form, in other words a natural born hurdler.

It was not publicly known that he was Jewish, mainly because he lived under a Communist regime that was hostile towards Jews. He never let it on of his Jewish faith but those close to him all said he was a closet Jew, unwilling to acknowledge his faith or to make an admission of this fact.
