Table of Contents
Publication of this volume was made possible
in substantial part by a generous contribution from Mrs. Nathalie Kunen
and the Kaye, Scholer, Fierman, Hayes and Handler Mishnah Club
in memory of Milton Kunen.
Milton Kunen was a scholar of the law
--both secular and talmudic--
and, most significantly, a lover of learning.
This book is a fitting memorial to the ideal exemplified by his life.
