This book is dedicated to
the Lubavitcher Rebbe
Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson
who (see list p. 149)
throughout this volume
is referred to simply as
"The debt of gratitude mentioned in "The Ladder Up" is a continuing one. Rabbis Perlow, Gourarie, Ulman and Braun however must be specially thanked for helping to structure and footnotes the shiurim and the resultant chapters of this book.
Nothing would be possible without the tireless tape recordings of my weekly shiurim by Pesach Johns.
My wife and Rabbi Y. Avtzon were the separate but joint editors who both have the gift of making necessary criticism supportive and constructive. Much thanks and appreciation belong to both."
