Moshe Kasher on His Deaf and Jewish Parents

By

Moshe Kasher performed on Conan last night to promote his new book Kasher in the Rye and to tell the world about the tragedy of growing up with parents who were both deaf and Jewish. He does do a good job at trying to “look deaf,” I’ll say that for him. Below, he takes a seat on the couch for some chhhhit-chhhhhat (that’s the Hebrew pronunciation) about growing up in a Chhhhhasidic neighborchhhhood.
