Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
During the years I worked on this book I enjoyed the support of various institutions: a Kreitman doctoral fellowship from Ben-Gurion University, a post-doctoral grant from the Genizah and Canon research study group at the Scholion Center of the Hebrew University headed by Prof. Menahem Ben Sasson, and at the University of Haifa, the Wolfson Chair, the School of History, the Faculty of Humanities and the FFNG foundation. The final revision of the book was made possible by a Bleehen visiting scholarship at St. John’s College in Cambridge. I am grateful to Tirza Bleehen, Efraim Lev and Stefan Reif, who encouraged and enabled me to take this opportunity. Last but not least, I am indebted to my friends and family: François Grandchamp, whose support, hospitality, friendship and chevruta study have been an inspiration; Gilad Jacobson, whose friendship, continual encouragement and involvement throughout the years helped me complete this book, and my parents, Shlomit and Yehezkel, who have always been there for me. Above all I wish to thank my wife, Tamar and our three no-longer newborns, Gefen, Neta and Dror. Your love, support and partnership accompanied me during this long journey, and now that the job is done, I can say “ours is yours”.
