David Bar-Tzur

David Bar-Tzur passed away suddenly on January 13, 2009, at age 60. I read of this news in the same paper that printed my grandma's obituary. I never knew him, but recognized his name because I have been an admirer of his work since I began my studies in ASL.

David Bar-Tzur worked in ASL interpreter education, and hosted a very informative website called The Interpreter's Friend. He lived and worked near Rochester, NY.

I hope that David's website will remain on the internet and continue to be a valuable resource for sign language interpreters. I have admired his dedication to ASL and the Deaf community.
