Shabbaton For The Deaf

Our Way, the Orthodox Union’s division for Jewish deaf and hard of hearing, will visit Pikesville for a one-of-a kind Shabbat experience for deaf and members of their families.

Registration is mandatory, and sleeping arrangements are available upon registration. Reservations are due by Wednesday, October 23.

Our Way has brought its joyous Shabbaton programs to communities all over North America, open to members of the Jewish community from all backgrounds.  Materials and prayer services will be provided in American Sign Language and deaf advisors will assist to create a meaningful, traditional Shabbat experience.

The Shabbaton will include three delicious traditional Shabbat meals; interpreted services in the synagogue; Torah sessions by Deaf leaders; a Beginner’s minyan program sessions, and an opportunity to join together with others to live and learn about Judaism. Saturday night culminates with a family social event.

Rabbi David Kastor will serve as the Deaf Torah Scholar. He will present a session (verbal and in ASL) entitled, “Wishing Wells?” and will lead the Interpreted Torah reading on Shabbat morning. Lectures and discussions will be led by Rabbi Eliezer Lederfeind, director of Our Way, who will discuss “How to Pray: What to Say”; David Michalowski, who will talk about “Spiritual Relationships: Passive Versus Proactive”; and Arkady Belozovsky, who will be delivering “Words to Inspire.”
