Deaf Rabbi

Darby Leigh is the new assistant rabbi at B’nai Keshet, a synagogue in Montclair, New Jersey. The 35-year-old profoundly deaf man is the son of deaf parents. Leigh toured with the National Theater of the Deaf before attending rabbinical school to learn Hebrew. Leigh was the first male, deaf student to attend on of the major rabbinical seminaries in the US. Here is a video about him. (no captioning)
