On behalf of the Jewish Deaf Community Center, I was honored by the Greater Los Angeles Council on Deafness (GLAD) with their Presidents Award. Richard Ray, GLAD president, presented the award to me during their 30th Anniversary Banquet at the Bay View Hotel on May 1st.
The President's Award is given to a person who "provides highest quality service, personal, and business for the deaf and hard of hearing communities; demonstrate leadership capabilities; high moral character and good citizenship; and community involvement. This individual was chosen for her exceptional involvement in the deaf, hard of hearing and hearing communities through her leadership on the local, state, and national level. " On the plaque, it states that the award was presented "For her personal commitment in serving the Jewish Deaf Community and as the founder of Jewish Deaf Community Center." I want to thank you all for your support throughout JDCC's seven years. It would not have been possible without all of you!
JDCC has exciting plans for the High Holidays! A different guest leader will conduct Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services this year. If you are interested in being on the High Holiday Committee, please contact us.
