The Jewish Braille Review, a publication for the blind, was today publicly congratulated by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt for the service it has given to Jewish and non-Jewish blind readers during the ten years of its existence.

“I want to congratulate the Jewish Braille Review which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month,” Mrs. Roosevelt writes today in her syndicated daily column “My Day.” “This magazine was founded primarily to meet the cultural and spiritual needs of the Jewish blind, but it has from the first been sent free to many non-Jewish readers as wall. Today there are as many Christians of various denominations as there are people of the Jewish faith enjoying this unique magazine. Helem Keller has always been one of those to whom this magazine has meant something of real Value.”
