Prof. S. Friedman's Mevo L' Talmud Aruch

Prof. Friedman has added many new articles to his site. Most notably, he included the introduction to his groundbreaking work, Talmud Aruch on Ch. 6 Bava Metzia. The large amount of effort that Prof. Freedman has placed into both writing and disseminating his work is very impressive and a true exemplar of the Talmudic dictum, להגדיל תורה ולהאדירו (Chullin end of Ch. 3). A brief review of Prof. Firedman's work can be found here.

I hope to write up a more complete discussion of Prof. Firedman's work, the new Mesivta Gemaros, and a general discussion of the merits or demerits of academic versus traditional scholarship some day when I'm less rushed and more awake.

For the moment, I want to thank Prof. Friedman for making available his work to those of use who do not have easy access to a full academic library. He is one of the greatest Marbitzei Torah of our generation and I wish his enterprise much success.

And we thank you as well for letting us know about their availability (you beat menachemmendel to the punch.) Apparently a volume of his collected articles is in the works.
