Jewish and Deaf: One Microculture or Two?

By Sheryl Cooper

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

Deaf Jews are members of two cultures. The Deaf community, is strong and unified, but for Deaf Jews, there are many barriers to full participation in the Jewish community, including a halachic view that emphasizes disability and the lack of adequate educational and religious services. Recommendations are made to support the attempts of Deaf Jews to become full members of the Jewish community.
