is dedicated by an anonymous admirer of his and a generous supporter of our work. The dedicators of each individual volume are Yaakov and Beatrice Herzog and their family, of Toronto. The Herzogs are dedicators of several Foundation volumes. We are gratified that such a distinguished family has chosen to be ardent supporters of our work.
