Programs: JBI International (established in 1931 as the Jewish Braille Institute) provides the visually impaired, blind and reading disabled of all ages with FREE books, magazines and special publications of Jewish and general interest in Audio, Large Print and Braille formats that enable them to maintain their connection to the world of ideas and the life of their communities. JBI Talking Books (over 13,000 titles) provide access to a very wide range of fiction and non-fiction; periodicals and cultural programs keep people entertained, informed and connected; customized textbooks and Bar/Bat Mitzvah materials allow blind, visually impaired and dyslexic students to study alongside their peers; and JBI's liturgical materials, in Braille, Audio, and Large Print, allow participation in synagogue services. JBI is truly the only resource of its kind worldwide. JBI's materials are available in English, Russian, Yiddish, Hebrew, Romanian, Hungarian, Polish and now in Spanish. Additionally, JBI's pioneering Low Vision Clinic at Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv is the premier facility of its kind, treating the visual consequences of congenital disease, aging, or head injury, with personalized optometric devices. JBI serves more than 35,000 individuals in need all over the world, FREE OF CHARGE.

JBI International seeks the integration of Jews who are blind, visually impaired and reading disabled into the Jewish community and society in general. We assist those whom we serve to relate to the religious, educational, cultural and communal life of the Jewish people. Our scope is international and we serve those of all ages and backgrounds.
