The Essential Talmud by Adin Steinsaltz (2006, Paperback, Revised)
To discuss any of our current projects which you or your organization would like to sponsor or to suggest areas of potential mutual interest which could be explored as focuses for sponsorship, please contact the Fund Office, Ph: or Email: szcuf[at]anatomy. Both facilities have given Institute members access to state of the art equipment essential in current biological research and they have formed the model for the establishment of further joint facilities within the Institute. By demonstrating the value of such facilities, they have been instrumental in raising further funds from major granting bodies to establish more, and maintain all these facilities.
In his final report to the Fund, Prof Hunt highlighted many of the new developments in the work of the Flow Cytometry Facility which have ensued during They include:. In the Fund undertook support for a new Bosch Institute initiative to promote scientific collaborations between Bosch and the Institute for Medical Research at the Hebrew University by funding 5 — 6 short-term academic visits between the Institutes some in each direction to facilitate the establishment of collaborations.
Their programme of meetings and presentation resulted in the commencement of several research interactions. The next stage is for a reciprocal visit by Bosch researchers to the Hebrew University later in Through the International Office of the University of Sydney, the Institute has also been made aware of European and Australian sources of funds to facilitate research and student exchange between European institutions and external countries.
Some of these funding bodies consider Israeli institutions as European and so will fund Australia-Israel collaborations. Hence the Fund's support has again been instrumental in opening the way to further avenues of funding new ventures for the Institute. Concluding his final report to the Trustees, Prof Hunt wrote, " I would like to add my personal appreciation of the invaluable support that the SZCUF has given to medical research in general and the Bosch Institute specifically. I hope that you will long continue in your commitment to advancing knowledge and building bridges between these two universities — institutions of character and intellectual strength.
This project has yielded many publications, supported the training of two PhD students, one at each university and has facilitated significant technology transfer between the two institutions. Building on the results from this project, Profs Hunt and Golenser have proposed a follow-on project in which they will use new adjunctive treatments, develop better ways to deliver these compounds and investigate the possibility of vaccinating against the disease complications of malaria rather than against the parasite itself. Joint applications for cooperative projects were also encouraged.

This follows interest in the field of AD research developed by the Fund through its Alzheimer's Disease and Inflammation Initiative established in The project will focus on the process that causes the accumulation of tau, one of the two diagnostic abnormalities exhibited by the damaged nerve cells which characterise AD-affected brains. The researchers believe that understanding this process is important for identifying and developing new ways to treat AD. They say that, "Decline in energy metabolism, visible in AD brain scans, occurs in the same areas as the damaged nerve cells.
The hypothesis on which this project is based is that reduced energy metabolism in the brain initiates the accumulation of tau.

Using a multi-pronged approach, our study aims to determine ways to short-circuit the pathway between energy depletion and brain damage by revealing the sequence of events that explains the abnormal accumulation of tau. Speaking on behalf of the Trustees he said, " We were very pleased with the level of interest generated by the Grant and the standard of the proposals submitted.
Eleven outstanding applications were received, 5 from the University of Sydney and 6 from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. They were all of a very high standard and the job of the Grant Assessment Committee, in choosing an awardee, was indeed a difficult one. The project will be undertaken over the next 2 years. We look forward to reporting on the outcomes of this important work. In its initial years — 06 in collaboration with Dr Karen Cullen, the project established the concept that senile plaques form at the site of cerebral microhaemorrhages. The new project postulates that macrophages specific cells that appear at the site of tissue damage such as stroke, to clean-up debris of dying cells , actively form plaques.
If confirmed, this outcome will tip the "which-comes-first" debate firmly to haemorrhage-comes-first. It will accelerate acceptance of the critical issue, that age-related dementia is a vascular disease, for which prevention, treatment and relief of symptoms will be found in the stabilization of blood vessels, the reduction of vascular risk factors and the treatment of the thousands of mini-strokes which threaten the aging brain".
During his visit, Mr Shai taught in both the graduate and undergraduate Modern Hebrew programs and assisted Ms Yona Gilead, coordinator of the course with research for her doctorate in which she is examining factors affecting language learning as opposed to language teaching. Ostensibly it is the corpus juris of the Jews from about the first century before the Christian era to about the fourth after it.
But we shall see as we proceed that the Talmud was much more than this. The very word "Law" in Hebrew—"Torah"—means more than its translation would imply.
The Jew interpreted his whole religion in terms of law. It is his name in fact for the Bible's first five books—the Pentateuch. To explain what the Talmud is we must first explain the theory of its growth more remarkable perhaps than the work itself. What was that theory? The Divine Law was revealed to Moses, not only through the Commands that were found written in the Bible, but also through all the later rules and regulations of post-exilic days.
These additional laws it was presumed were handed down orally from Moses to Joshua, thence to the Prophets, and later still transmitted to the Scribes, and eventually to the Rabbis.
The reason why the Rabbis ascribed to Moses the laws that they later evolved, was due to their intense reverence for Scripture, and their modest sense of their own authority and qualification. They felt and believed that all duty for the guidance of man was found in the Bible either directly or inferentially. Their motto was then, "Search the Scriptures," and they did search them with a literalness and a painstaking thoroughness never since repeated.
Not a word, not a letter escaped them. Every redundancy of expression was freighted with meaning, every repetition was made to give birth to new truth.

Some of the inferences were logical and natural, some artificial and far-fetched, but all ingenious. Sometimes the method was inductive and sometimes deductive. That is, occasionally a needed law was promulgated by the Jewish Sanhedrin, and then its authority sought in the Scripture, or the Scripture would be sought in the first instance to reveal new law.
