The Synagogue Council of America has adopted a Hebrew Braille for the blind, it was announced yesterday by Rabbi Harry J. Brevis, chairman of a committee that drew up the code.

Rabbi Brevis is the blind chaplain of the New York Guild for the Jewish Blind. He has worked on the problem for four years. As a result of his efforts and the council’s approval an international Hebrew Braille is brought into use for the first time.

According to Rabbi Brevis, the code differs from the standard Braille in the number of vowels, more numerous in the Hebrew system, and in the codification of sounds peculiar to the Hebrew language.
