   Response to a critical review by Joel Dembitzer of the book Ir ha-Zedek by Jehiel Matthias Zunz by R. Judah Keib Riterman. The title page that it is a response to the objections and pretexts of the review of the book ir-ha-Zedek in the journal ha-Shahar. Ir ha-Zedek (Lemberg, 1874), is a history of the rabbis and heads of Yeshivot and their works in Cracow from 1501 to 1856. That book was written with the assistance of the noted bibliographer R. Nathan Nata Rabbinowitz. In addition to his review Dembitzer also wrote a critical work entitled Mapelet Ir ha-Zedek. Ma’aneh is a detailed point-by-point defense of Ir ha-Zedek. It is set in a single column in square letters, excepting occasional footnotes which are in rabbinic type.
