By Courier staff

The fundraiser screening of Giselle Nissenbaum’s “Life On Mute” has been scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 6 at 3:30 p.m. at Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills.

“As a hearing-impaired child who then became deaf at age 10, I continue to learn that in life’s challenges, we can find blessings and gifts, and discover new strengths,” Nissenbaum said.

Beverly Hills resident Nissenbaum, now 13, produced this mini-documentary about four deaf/severely hearing-impaired women in connection with her Bat Mitzvah to reflect the spirit of “Tzedakah” (charity) and “Tikkun Olam” (repairing the world). Her brother, Ari, edited and co-produced the short-film.

All proceeds from the January screening will support financially needy hearing-impaired/deaf children who are currently being treated at John Tracy Clinic in Los Angeles.
