   Polemic on the way of the Torah and respect for Talmudic scholars (rabbinic authorities) by R. Jonathon Benjamin ben Moses Judah ha-Levi Horowicz. The title is from, “[After him] he leaves a shining wake (ya’ir nativ)” (Job 42:24). The title page states the preceding purpose of the volume and is dated, “They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness יבאו ויגידו צדקתו (657 = 1897)” (Psalms 22:32). The verso of the title page has the verse, “Many shepherds have destroyed my vineyard, they have trampled my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness” (Jeremiah 12:10), appropriate tot eh volumes subject matter. The text begins in the month of Iyyar, 1896 R. Moses Salmon of Hust, rabbi in my neighborhood, sent me a copy of his book Nativ Moshe, which is a study on one of the ways of the Torah, and specifically on Kal ve-homer. R. Horowicz writes that he had hardly looked at it and realized that the author showed insufficient respect for the honor of the Torah and cast the true tradition to the ground. R. Horowicz brings arguments and proofs in favor of his position against R. Salmon. This is followed by an exchange of letters between the two men. There is also as section in German, from pp. 14-20, concluding with a Hebrew paragraph.
