Prayer Book for Jewish Blind to Be Issued

A prayer book for the Jewish blind, printed in Braille, will be ready for publication at an early date. The material for this prayer book is being gathered under the direction of Mrs. Joshua Piza of New York City, under the auspices of the National Council of Jewish Women.

Mrs. Piza has been associated with organizations devoted to the needs of the blind, as well as with movements interested in sight conservation. The recommendation to prepare this publication was presented by her at the recent conference of the Council which gave its approval to this publication.

The Council has already issued a similar book for the Jewish handicapped, the prayer book for the Deaf, which was prepared by Mrs. Sidney M. Stern of Philadelphia.
