Former Detroiter, Rabbi Brevis,
Hailed at 75 for Services to Blind

Two years after he began
to practice law in Detroit,
Harry Brevis (Korotkin) lost
his vision.
A graduate of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Brevis de-
cided to try another field of
endeavor and thus in 1926
entered the Jewish Institute
of Religion to study for the
rabbinate.
In tribute to his many
achievements, and on the oc-
casion of his 75th birthday,
A4*-- Rabbi Brevis was honored
recently by the Board of

in Batavia, N. Y. for 18
years, chaplain at Attica
Prison for 18 years and chap-
lain at the Los Angeles
Veterans Hospital for a
decade.
He has been a writer and
lecturer in the Buffalo and
Los Angeles communities.
At the dinner, attended by
360, a special award was
presented to Rabbi Brevis
from Yigal Anon, deputy
prime minister of Israel.
Consul Gen. Yakov Aviad
made the presentation, hail-
ing the rabbi's "singular
contribution to the thousands
of sightless people through.
out the world."
A medal of honor from the
Jewish Institute for the Blind
in Jerusalem also was given
to Rabbi Brevis, through the
Los Angeles Keren-Or.
In addition to the Hebrew
Braille code. Rabbi Brevis
authored "A Hebrew Braille
Chrestomathy," a volume of
readings from the Bible,
Mishna and modern litera-
ture.
His Braille code made
possible the publication of
the Hebrew Braille edition of
the Bible under the auspices
of the Jewish Braille Insti-
tute of America in 1946.
Twenty years later, his
"Anthology of Hebrew Liter-
ature" in two volumes was
published by the Jewish
Braille Institute.
He has received many
honors for his contributions
to the sightless, including an
honorary degree of doctor of
divinity from the Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Insti-
tute of Religion in 1959.
Dr. Nelson Glueck, the late
president of HUC-JIR, de-
scribed him as a "Creative
scholar whose development
of a Hebrew Braile code
brings the light of Jewish
learning to the sightless. His
work will endure for genera-
tions to come."
Rabbi Brevis has served as
president of the Buffalo
Board of Rabbis and the
Zionist Organization of Amer-
ica in that city, president of
the National Jewish Prison
lecturer at the University of
Buffalo and the California
branch of the Hebrew Union
College. He has written for
the Atlantic Monthly, Coro-
net and other national jour-
nals.

Mrs. Ginsburg frequently writes
verses to express her enthusiasm
for Israel. The following is part
of a lengthy poem she wrote on
the occasion of Israel's 25th
anniversary.
We watched a State emerge from
Out of rock and sand —
Israel has earned the right to live
—this is her land—
Her promised Land —
With Israel's flag unfurled—
One of the modern wonders
Of the world!
How sad it is that enemies of
Israel still challenge
her existence,
And war-provoking incidents
Occur with grave insistences—
As long as Israel's people face,
No matter where, this senseless
persecution—there can be
no lasting peace
For Israel—No quick solution.
And now, at this time
in Israel's History,
Golda Meir guides her Country's
Destiny.
The world has taken this
Great woman to its heart—
Awed at the magnitude
of the part
She seems destined to fulfull.
She is tireless in her
search for peace
But does not hesitate to fight
The Wars of Hate and Bigotry.
We're proud of Golda Meir,
We of Israel's faith —
tier honesty, integrity
and great humanity.
It may well be Golda heir
Who holds the key
to a more peaceful destiny
Fur Israel.
