Some Spanish-Provencal odds and ends

Yesterday I was given an offprint of one of the articles in the latest volume of Netuim. The offprint contains remnants of Ra'avad's lost commentary on Baba Batra, and is preceded by a nice introduction by Dr. Uzy Fuchs.

This week's Haaretz literary section carried a review of the latest volume in Machon Yerushalayim's edition of responsa of the Rashba.

Rav Meir Lichtenstein, who is working on the writings of Ri Migash, spoke this week at YCT. His name got a little confused there, but that tilt of the head is unmistakable.

Apparently a new volume of Shenaton ha-Mishpat ha-Ivri has appeared. But I haven't seen it yet. I did see the latest (25) volume of Ma'aliyot, which contains a new Maimonides autograph, a new fragment of Abraham Maimonides' magnum opus HaMaspik le-Ovdei Hashem and an article about the work Mezukak Shiv'atayim.

I bet Netuim publishes more on Massekhet Kinnim than any other journal...

Rav Lichtenstein's name has been corrected. Sorry for any confusion.
