GARDNER INTRODUCTION P O V ER T Y AN D SU P PO R T for the poor have long been central concerns of rabbinic Judaism.1 The earliest works of rabbinic law, the Mishnah Earlier versions of this essay were presented at the Rabbis and Others in Conversation workshop at Princeton University (2009), the Judaism in Antiquity workshop at Harvard University (2010), and the Judaic Studies Faculty Seminar at Brown University (2011). I thank the organizers, Sarit Kattan Gribetz and Moulie Vidas; Ari B. Finkelstein, Jonathan Kaplan, and Yoni Miller; and Michael L. Satlow, respectively, for their invitations and helpful feedback. This essay was further improved by valuable feedback from Aryeh Amihay, Carey A. Brown, Vered Noam, Jordan D. Rosenblum, Jonathan W. Schofer, and the anonymous reviewers for this journal. Sections of the essay revise parts of my dissertation, ``Giving to the Poor in Early Rabbinic Judaism'' (Ph.D. diss.; Princeton University, 2009), which was supported by a Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Completion Fellowship.
