I don’t speak Russian. I never have been to Russia. Let me try to learn.’” Soudakoff said. So he partnered with a Chabad camp in Russia, and launched the world’s first deaf Jewish summer program in 2013. And then came the boys’ camp in the United States, and now the girls’ camp...

...“We were driving back from a Bat Mitzvah atop the cliff-top fortress at Masada,” said the rabbi, “and suddenly we found ourselves in the middle of a ‘traffic jam.’” A massive camel herd simply strolled into the road, right in front of Elharar’s amazed eyes. The rabbi barely had time to hit the brakes, he said. “God allowed those camels to pass me [on the road],” the emissary said with a laugh. Elharar typically spends half of his day in his car, visiting Jews at locations from one end of the Dead Sea to the other.
