Excerpt from Care and Treatment of the Jewish Blind in the City of New York
Between two groups of this latter body, there arose differences of opinion as to policies and methods, which finally had their climax in the withdrawal of one group from the Council and in their separate organization and later incorporation as the Guild for the Jewish Blind, with Objects and purposes similar to those Of the parent body. The Council continued its Committee, but its work for the blind since that time has become of minor importance.
But further disharmony arose in the field after the organization of the Guild. There existed at that time a group of blind Jewish people of the East Side who felt that the problems of the blind were not being adequately handled by the existing agencies. Taking the position that the blind themselves had never been given a fair share in the management of their own problems and determining that, henceforward they would take an important part in the direction of their own affairs, this group of blind persons resolved to form an agency of their own and founded The Hebrew Association for the Blind - the fourth specialized agency to enter the field.
