Bio: Rabbi Yehoshua, who grew up in sunny Los Angeles, currently lives in the just-as-sunny Holy Land with his wife Cheftziba and their newest addition, Baila. After graduating from the world’s only yeshiva high school for deaf and hard of hearing boys in Toronto, Canada, he received his rabbinical ordination in Brooklyn. He and his wife are also the official Chabad emissaries for the Deaf and hard of hearing community, and their many projects – from summer camp to Shabbat retreats and Chanukah celebrations to online classes – touch the lives of many deaf and hard of hearing Jews around the globe.
