rial Hospital. In 1976, in
order that their son receive
a full English and Jewish
education, the Borisutes
sent Paul to live with his
grandmother while attend-
ing an Orthodox Jewish
school in England.
However, -Mrs. Borisute
-said, "My inquiries to all
the organizations for the
blind and partially sighted
in England (concerning
Paul's preparation for Bar
Mitzva ) were fruitless."
One day, while visiting Ox-
ford and thinking of how to
_solve Paul's problem, Mrs.
Borisute spent some time
browsing in a book - store
when "completely by acci-
dent I found the name and
address of your organizaiton
in a book called the "Second
Jewish Earth Catalog."
Upon hearing from his
mother, the Jewish Braille
Institute of America sent to
Paul as a gift the complete
Sabbath prayerbook in four
large-type Hebrew and Eng-
lish volumes, his large-type
Haftara reading including
his prayers for putting on
tefilin and for before and
after reading from the To-
rah and the Haftara.
The JBI has all 67 differ-
ent weekly Sabbath portions
of the prophets and Torah
available in Braille and in
large type to send to any
blind or–partially sighted
Bar or Bat Mitzva.
The Jewish Braille In-
stitute provides for the cul-
tural and religious needs of
the Jewish blind and serves
many thousands of sightless
and partially sighted per-
sons throughout the world
with out charge. JBI has the
largest private library of
Braille volumes and tapes.
It also publishes the "Jew-
ish Braille Review" and is-
sues Hebre-w-Engligh
Braille prayerbooks and the
Bible in Hebrew Braille.

Oldest Zionist
Weekly Closes

LONDON (JTA)—The
Jewish Observer and Middle
Fast Review, the world's
oldest Zionist weekly paper,
closed down last week be-
cause of lack of funds.
The organ of the Zionist
Federation of Great Britain
first appeared more than 60
years ago under the title
"Zionist Review." It was
given it present name in
1952.
The demise of the paper
followed the withdrawal of a
direct subsidy by the Jewish
Agency, in Jerusalem, which
had kept it in business for
the past three years.
Previously, it had been
largely financed by a- block
subscription by the Joint Is-
rael Appeal. The ending of
the block_ subscription
caused the circulation to be
cut from- more. than 12,000
copies a week to about 4,000.
Some of the outstanding
figures in Zionism had been
associated with the Review.
The paper opened in May
1917 on the instigation of Dr.
Chaim Weizmann, then
president of the British Zi-
onist Fedifation.
Sir Leon _Simon, a close
_friend of Weizmann, was the
first editor. Later editors
included Paul Goodman, the
Rev. Maurice Perlzweig,
Moshe Pearlman and Dr. S.
Levenberg.
In announcing the' closing
of the paper, the Zionist
Federation said they hope to
bring out a monthly maga-"
zhie in the middle of 1978,
concentrating on ideological
articles rather than news
analysis.

Begin, Sadat Cited

BEERSHEBA, (JTA)-
Premier Menahem Begin of
Israel and President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt were named
by the Ben-Gurion Univer-
sity of the Negev recipients
of the first Ben-Gurion Uni-
versity Amity Award for
"outstanding contribution
toward understanding be:
tween the peoples of - the
Middle East."
Nessim Gaon, chairman
of the university's board of
governors who accompanied
the Israeli delegation to the
peace talks in Ismailia, was
asked in a cable from uni-
versity president Yosef Te-
koah to personally notify the
recipients.

Feelings that don't show
on the face lie on the heart.

AJCongress Asks
Oil Tax Reversal

NEW YORK—The Ameri-
can Jewish Congress has
urged Secretary of the
Treasury W. Michael Blu-
menthal to reverse a 1955
'ruling allowing royalties
paid by U.S. oil companies
to foreign governments to
be treated as "taxes" for
which full income tax credit
may be claimed in the
United States.
In a letter to Secretary
Blumenthal, Rabbi Arthur
Hertzberg, president of the
Congress, said:
"This ruling has encour-
aged the diversion of
enormous -revenues to for-
eign governments and fa-
vored oil entrepreneurs,
revenues that normally and
-- more justly should have ac-
crued to the U.S.- Treasury.
It has resulted in a gross
distortion and misallocation
of the economic burden
which must be shouldered
by the people of this coun-
try.''
