Translator's Footnotes

  1. A reference to one of the thirty-six righteous people, who by Jewish tradition, live in each generation and uphold the world. Back
  2. The Jewish and secular years do not correspond here. The Jewish year 5688 would correspond to 1927-1928, not 1931.  Back
  3. Referring to insuring both their physical and spiritual growth. Back
  4. Only a Hebrew date was given. The English date corresponds to 1970 or 1971. The Hebrew date given here is 5631, 100 years previous to what I wrote, but that is obviously an error. Back
