Optimizing Your Seder for the Visually Impaired

Here at we're dedicated to making sure that everyone can have a seder that is meaningful and unique. Unfortunately, with the aging of the population, more and more seniors are suffering from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and other age-related vision diseases.  So many of us have aging relatives who desperately want to take an active role at their family’s seder—but their failing vision makes that impossible. So we're thrilled to let our users know that the Jewish Braille Institute is providing FREE Large Print (and, of course, Braille and Audio) Haggadahs to anyone who is visually impaired or physically handicapped. 

JBI wants visually impaired seniors, as well as their children and grandchildren, to know about the availability of The JBI Library and its life enriching free services.  All it takes is a phone call to 1-800-999-6476 (before March 18th) or a visit to to get a free JBI Large Print Haggadah in time for the Seder.

Enjoy your seder!
