fessor Maurice Friedman, who was privileged to enjoy a fine
relationship with Dr. Buber, has written a memorial tribute
elsewhere in this volume. We associate ourselves with the state-
ment of Professor Shemuel Hugo Bergman: “Humanity has lost
one of its greatest sons, Jewry has lost its greatest son and Israel
has lost her living conscience.”

Again we voice our gratitude to those who have made possible
the publication of the
Annual
: to our sponsor, the National
Jewish Welfare Board, and to the Lucius N. Littauer Founda-
tion for their generous gifts; also to the national organizations
affiliated with the Jewish Book Council. Special kudos has
been earned by our indefatigable Executive Secretary, Rabbi
Goodman, by Rabbi Gilbert Klaperman, our Council president,
and by Dr. Mortimer J. Cohen and Harry Starr, among others.
It is earnestly hoped that this volume will be a vindication of
their zealous endeavors.
