Mazel Tov to Kerem Shalom Rabbi Darby Leigh on being featured in “From Twisted Sister to the Pulpit, a Deaf Rabbi Finds his Place in ‘a Society Not Set Up for You,’” in Forward’s February 2, 2021, issue.
“From a young age, Darby Leigh knew he was on a spiritual path. Fascinated by religion and spiritual practices, he thought about becoming a rabbi but quickly dismissed it, for one main reason: He is profoundly deaf.
Today, Leigh is rabbi of Congregation Kerem Shalom in Concord, Massachusetts — and at the forefront of creating the kind of open, inclusive community he once found lacking in Jewish life. . . .”
