Shabbat Cotton by Bill Aron

Yesterday I handed in my senior thesis, a project I have been working on for over a year. Suffice it so say, turning it in feels like one of the biggest accomplishments of my life thus far. I would like to once again thank my thesis advisor, Dr. Molly B. Farneth for all her help and support during this process.

Though I have allowed the thesis to be available to scholars worldwide, I want to make it available to anyone else who might be interested. Feedback is welcome!
