Rabbi Fred Friedman
Jewish Deaf Community Center, 31 July 2009 [cached]
Rabbi Fred Friedman, a well-known deaf Rabbi who has served as Convention Rabbi for Jewish Deaf Congress in 1990 in Brooklyn, NY; for World Organization for the Deaf in Paris, France, 1992 and in London, England in 1995, explains that "We have worked on this project for few months and can now finally offer an unique program with new and exciting experiences for young Jewish Deaf people between 21-30. Now in its 20th year, Livnot U'Lehibanot combines scenic hikes, tours and study programs for young adults ages 21-30. No knowledge of Hebrew or level of religious observance is required. Participants will spend time at both the Jerusalem and Tzfat (Sated in English) campuses. Interpreters will accompany the group for all hikes, classes, community service projects and other activities. For information about the Livnot experience, visit their website at or e-mail Rabbi Friedman at . Financial assistance is available through nearly twenty communities in North America and efforts are being made to arrange partial scholarships to qualified applicants through various sources.

Then, about 25 years ago, Rabbi Fred Friedman was brought in from Baltimore. Rabbi Friedman, a musmach of Net Yisrael, was only the second deaf Rav in the U.S. After his arrival, more deaf people started to attend.
"I feel very fortunate to be a part of the HSD," says Rabbi Friedman. "Most of the people who participate are not frum and would be lost in a regular minyan. There is very little available to them."
Rabbi Friedman explains how the services work.
I still go to the BHSD for the High Holidays as we have our own Rabbi Fred Friedman. He has been with us now for 25 years, and my family and I enjoy going because the service is never boring."
"It's a very humbling feeling; I like to pass on the tradition," says Rabbi Friedman.
Much of the davening is done in sign language, and Rabbi Friedman explains as they go along. There is a baal korei as well. "He is a hearing person from Rabbi Greenberg's shul who comes and reads the Torah. After the reading, someone signs what was just read. They go back and forth between reading and signing so no one feels lost.
"Rabbi Friedman has literally turned the Jewish deaf world upside down," says Mr. Katz.
Besides leading the services, Rabbi Friedman also speaks five or six times over the course of Yom Tov. He conducts a question-and-answer session at which people can ask anything they want to about Yiddishkeit.
