   Polemical work directed against Christian misuse of Jewish sources by R. Samuel Shraga Feigensohn, described on the title page as Shaphan the scribe (II Chronicles 34:15, 18, 20). Elbonah shel Torah is directed against forgeries and misuse of midrashim, the Talmud, and other Jewish works by gentile printers and missionaries. There is a table of contents which lists the introduction, here described as a prozdor, entitled, “The sun shall be turned into darkness” (Joel 3:4) the insult to the true Torah; followed by the six discourses comprising Elbonah shel Torah, all addressed to the subject of distortions of Jewish sources. Elbonah shel Torah is based on an accurate reading of Talmudic and midrashic passages in contrast to the distortions used by Christians for missionary and conversionary purposes. The text is in a single column in square letters. Elbonah shel Torah is a rare work and in many libraries available only in microform.
