Torah Live in sign language…

Just got back from Toronto where I met the local cheder (TTC, Rabbi Engel), Kiruv centre (Aish, Rabbi Mitch Mandel), Ashkenazi school (Etz Chaim, Rabbi Uri Kaufman), Sefardi school (Ohr Haemet, Rabbi Zvi Kamenetsky), Yeshiva (Darchei, Rabbi Breitowitz) and Torah U'Mesorah teacher centre (Mrs Chaya Messinger) - ALL of whom are interested in ordering Torah Live material.

But the highlight of the trip was presenting to a high school for the deaf (Nefesh Dovid), the only one of its kind in the world. Seeing the boys thirsty for Torah yet so challenged to communicate moved me beyond words.

The white bearded person in the picture is Rabbi Kakon, the dean - who is also deaf - and the person next to me was translating in sign language as I spoke.

With Hashems help, I plan to to add subtitles to all future Torah Live videos so that the hard of hearing and deaf among us can also enjoy learning and growing from our material.
