He is an incredible person and has done so much good. Everyone can learn from him and his avodas hakodesh. Do something to help out the cause!

…I make sure to click on articles about you whenever I see something. I really commend the work you are doing and admire your determination and accomplishments. I am on shlichus and while I have not met a Jewish deaf person yet, I am so grateful that I have somewhere to direct them if and when I meet someone.

Very appropriate for the end of Pesach — Not only did this beautiful young man go out of his own meitzarim, he is showing *us* how to break out of our self-imposed limitations, i.e. to interact with deaf Jews we meet in the future. Bravo!

Just because you are deaf-or whatever else you may have that the Jewish community doesn’t want to accept, doesn’t make you any less Jewish or less of a person.
