T h e English reade r should be aware o f the jou rn a l
a jo in t ven ture between Christian and Jewish scholars. T he jo u r ­
nal regularly publishes articles on Bible (and o the r aspects o f
Judaica) translated from Hebrew originals.
Finally, we call attention to the late Samuel Loewenstamm’s

Lowenstamm’s papers reveal a comparatist in philology, liter­

tions readily accessible.
It is my pleasant duty to thank colleagues who responded graciously to requests
for information about their work and who generously supplied me with off­
prints. I especially wish to acknowledge the help provided by Professor Chaim
Cohen o f Ben-Gurion University and Professor Jacob Klein of Bar-Ilan Uni­
