Visual description: The header reads “Virtual ASL Hanukkah Shabbat Gathering” in capital letters. Three images are lined up below the header. The first image on the left is a photograph of a silver Hanukkah menorah with blue and gold lit candles. Two dreidels and few gold gelts lie at the base of the menorah. In the middle, there is a photograph of Shirly Pinto, a white woman with dark brown long hair parted to the left side. She is wearing a black blazer over a white blouse and is smiling to the camera. The photograph on the right displays three blue dreidels with white Hebrew letters: Shin, Gimel, and Hey. In the next line, the captions read “Special guest speaker Shirly Pinto.”

At the footer of the image, there are four lines. The first line reads “Friday, December 8, 2023” with the next line giving the times, 7 PM EST, 6:00 PM CST, 5:00 PM MST, 4:00 PM PST, for the ASL Shabbat Gathering. The third line notes that the event is “collaborated with the partners of the ASL Shabbat Coalition.” The fourth line features logo images from three Jewish Deaf organizational partners: Hillel at Gallaudet, Jewish Deaf Congress and Jewish Deaf Resource Center.
