      MK's 'Sing' in Sign Language


      A day of solidarity with organizations that advocate for the deaf will take place tomorrow in the Knesset, a result of an initiative by MK Shuli Muallem (Jewish Home) and Deputy Minister of Education MK Avi Wertzman. 

      Discussions will be held in committees and before the entire plenum, in the special event to take place in the Knesset auditorium to mark 20 years since the establishment of the Institute for the Advancement of the Deaf.  There will also be a special video screening.

      "This is a day for us to pay attention and to place on our agenda the difficulties of deaf and hearing-challenged Israelis," MK Muallem said.
