Letters to the Editor

I was very pleased with the response at the recent lecture and the International Kosher Chinese evening. I am looking forward to seeing JDCC continue growing. We had a moment of silence in memory of Yvette Mohr who was killed in an automobile accident before we started the lecture by Rabbi Abner Weiss.

The Museum of Tolerance Tour was a big success. It was the first time the Museum had a large tour of deaf participants and it was an challenging experience for them. From our experience, they will be able to improve the needs of deaf participants such as captioning the films, spotlights in dark areas, split up groups of maximum of 15 as we had 30 in each group and it was too large. Thanks to Janet Garfinkle, Alan Hier, Dr. Gerald Margolis and Francine Lis for making this event possible. Also a big thanks to the two interpreters, Francine Stem & Melinda Pollack who did an excellent job. We will be planning another tour sometime in the fall for those who missed this opportunity.

Some people have asked if I could print some notes on the lectures as they couldn't attend due to conflicts so I have asked Dina Dror to write up an article and want to thank her for doing it. I have written one on the first lecture on Circumcision.

I am pleased to announce that we will have Rabbi Fred Friedman lead Yom Kippur services for Creative Services/JDCC again this year! It will be held on Thursday, September 15th. We will be offering two options this year, services only and services with breathe-fast dinner. See inside for more details.

I am excited to announce that we will have a panel of deaf holocaust survivors that will share their experience on May 22nd, Sunday. Location will be announced in the next issue.

There will be no activities in July and August so we will resume with Yom Kippur services.
