Finally, thinking about all the books we have gained in this past
decade leads us to recall as well what we have lost: Many of our
greatest thinkers, writers and teachers passed away during this pe­
riod. Six, among the many that could be listed, come immediately
to mind: Salo Baron, Gerson Cohen, H.L. Ginsberg, Yeshayahu
Leibowitz, Jacob Rader Marcus, and Jacob Petuchowski. In the
books we write and in the books we read, may we honor their
memories.
