Detail Description

Virulent polemic against R. Moses Feinstein and his Iggerot Moshe R. Yom Tov Halevi Schwartz. The author, a brilliant rabbinical scholar, graduate of the Yeshiva Hakhmei Lublin,  attacks hundreds of responsa as outright wrong, indeed he accuses Reb Moshe of permitting the forbidden on more that one occasion. His attacks are personal and scholarly at the same time. The volume was issued in a limited edition and caused quite a stir when it was published. Rare as many copies were acquired by Reb Moshe's students and destroyed.

Hebrew Description

בו נתתי מענה על יותר ממאה וששים שאלות שנשאלו בספר שו"ת אגרותמשה והוכחתי שהמחבר הזה הכשיל את הרבים באופן מחריד בהתרת הרבה איסורים חמורים וטעה בכל הראותיו או בדבר משנה או בשיקול הדעת וסברא וחזרתי על כל ענין לבררו להלכה ולמעשי, מהגה"צ יום טוב הלוי שווארץ רב דק"ק נחלת יעקב קווינס, נ"י, תשל"ד
