Jewish Deaf Association Deaf Awareness Training a success!

JDAvideo27th July 2012

The Jewish Deaf Association has run a Deaf Awareness Training course at the Jewish Free School in North London since 2004, as part of the school’s Hand in Hand project, which gives students the opportunity to learn about the work of various charities. The Deaf Awareness training that JDA gives to JFS pupils may be their only experience of deaf people and is an opportunity for the charity to encourage the next generation to consider how they can communicate with Deaf people.

This year, in July, Jewish Deaf Association staff and members visited the Jewish Free School school to deliver their regular Deaf Awareness Training.  Chosen staff and students were split into three groups where, led by JDA volunteer Rebecca Clements, they were taught the signs for the song ‘Greatest Day’ by Take That.

At the final assembly, all 60 students, together with JDA members, staff and interpreters, went on stage to perform the signed song to the school audience and staff. The group received rapturous applause!

Announcement: Jewish Deaf Multimedia (JDMM) has started a section for non-Jewish people.  

noahide"Unlike the belief of many other religions, we do not encourage conversion. We strongly believe that as a non-Jew, you play an important role in this world.

"Judaism teaches that non-Jews are capable of earning a respected place in the Next World - provided they are from the "righteous of the nations of the world."

"In practical terms, what does this mean? It means observing a simple code of law called the Seven Noahide Laws."

Gallaudet's William Chapman named to Jewish Sports Review All-America team for a second time

W_ChapmanJewish Sports Review
July 18, 2012

LOS ANGELES – Gallaudet University baseball outfielder William Chapman (Los Angeles, Calif.) was selected to the 2012 Jewish Sports Review All-America first team for college baseball at the Division II, III and NAIA levels for a second year in a row. This is Chapman's third award this year as he was selected to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Division III South Region third team and the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) all-conference first team. Chapman is the only player from a NEAC school on this All-America team.

Chapman led the NEAC/NAC in doubles (18) this past season and was ranked second in on base percentage (.488), hit by pitch (13), third in batting average (.404), fourth in hits (55), runs (43), fifth in slugging percentage (.574), eighth in total bases (78), 14th in RBI (30) and 15th sacrifice flies (three) in the 41 games he started. His doubles total ranked 25th in the national Division III final rankings. In the field he had a .966 fielding percentage. He also made 11 pitching appearances (six starts) where he went 3-0 against conference opponents.

Chapman helped Gallaudet to its best season ever as the Bison compiled a 25-17 record and 10-4 conference mark. The Bison reached the NEAC West Division championship game but fell to Penn St.-Berks, 13-5. The 25 wins is a new single-season record for the Gallaudet program that dates back to the late 1800s.
