The work is thus a treasury both of learned and eminent writings and of ingenuous, personal letters.Exhibiting profound scholarship and sensitivity, Dr. Kobler places each letter or group of letters in context by a brief historical or biographical introduction, and often by a postscript noting the effect. In this way the annotations and letters form a connected narrative which traces the soul and history of the Jewish people.
