Description Information
   Only edition. 406 pp., 304:234 mm., wide margins, light staining. A very good copy bound in the original boards.
   Virulent polemic against R. Moses Feinstein and his Iggerot Moshe. The author 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.
Paragraph 2    בו נתתי מענה על יותר ממאה וששים שאלות שנשאלו בספר שו"ת אגרות משה 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 ולמעשה, מהגה"צ יום טוב הלוי שווארץ רב דק"ק נחלת יעקב קווינס, נ"י, תשל"ד
