In a message dated 8/3/2005 1:29:40 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,I didn't understand Rabbi Susser's reference because he made mention of it
being a translation of the Hebrew. As a rabbi he would obviously know of
Shemtov, and I don't think that you would have to have a terribly good
knowledge of French to know that bon nom and not bon homme means good name.
I suspect that it was a slip in his otherwise amazingly erudite paper - and
it has clearly slipped through the editing - but they would have to have a
knowledge of Hebrew as well as French!
