TO AARON S. RAISINYour name, dear father, will not be found in the following pages, for, like "the waters of the Siloam that run softly," youever preferred to pursue your useful course in unassumingsilence. Yet, as it is your life, devoted entirely to meditating,learning, and teaching, that inspired me in my effort, Idedicate this book to you; and I am happy to know that Ithus not only dedicate it to one of the noblest of Maskilim,but at the same time offer you some slight token of theesteem and affection felt for you by Your Son
