      For anyone interested, I revised and abridged Goulder's chart for a
      Sunday School class that I taught last year. It is a Word6 Document.
      It combines Goulder, Spong, and current Sidra and Haftorah readings used
      in contemporary Synagogues. I have given my sources full citations at
      the end. This was done for teaching purposes only and I have no plans on
      publishing it.

      I will be happy to send out the chart to those interested. Please write
      me at
