JBI helps Alan become a Bar Mitzvah
"I was an avid reader before I lost my sight. It was so hard when I couldn’t read books anymore. Then I found JBI Library and its wonderful collection of talking books in Russian. It really saved me from feeling completely lost in this world. Thank you so much for the work you do."
