In Episode 13 of Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier, Lamplighters Reporter/Producer Gary Waleik presents Part 1 of the story of deaf Rabbi Yehoshua Soudakoff, and how Soudakoff is reaching out to deaf Jews around the world. One he encountered in the U.S. had walked away from the Jewish community at the age of 25. But encounters with Soudakoff three decades later reopened the door to his Jewish learning and living.
Lamplighters: Stories From Chabad Emissaries On The Jewish Frontier is producing a series of moving, beautifully produced, sound-rich and often surprising stories of Chabad shluchim and the people they inspire in every corner of the world.
