This tribute is written in the knowledge that Robert Gordis
continues his public lecturing and teaching with his custom­
ary vigor, charm and wit, keenness of intellect and matchless
lucidity. In the field of biblical research, he is preparing major
works on the prophet Hosea and the Wisdom Literature of
Israel. A comprehensive philosophic treatise dealing with
ethics and law in Judaism is also among his current projects
nearing realization.
Together with his family, students, co-workers and admir­
ing followers, this writer joins in prayer:
neroya'ir
— may his
light continue shining with undimmed brightness —
’ad me’ah
ve-esrim.
