The church is silent when the Rev. Brian Sims takes the pulpit for his Sunday sermon. He pauses to make sure all eyes are on him, then raises his hands and begins preaching. Not a word passes his lips. "We're all different," Sims relates in American Sign Language, "but it doesn't matter as long as we open our hearts." Two deaf women lead the first hymn, which is played on tape for the handful of visitors who can hear. Sims, who also can hear, bangs a bass drum to mark the beat for the others.

Only about a dozen families regularly attend Temple Adas Israel in Brownsville, but it has been a mainstay for the area's Jewish community since the 1800s. The temple has two lay rabbis: Robert Kalin, a retired math professor, and Fred Silverstein Jr., a businessman. The cantor is an Episcopal priest; one organist is from the Presbyterian church and the other is from the Methodist church. And non-Jews in the community often sing in the temple choir.
