Responsa concerning a husband inheriting future obligations owed to his wife. The final four leaves contain an angry polemic against the author’s antagonists who disputed his ruling. He maintains that his disputant covers his deceit under the guise of righteousness. The author was accused of falsifying a responsa by R. Abraham HaLevi published in his work Ginath Veradim (Constantinople, 1716) concerning bank obligations. Since this text is scarce, he decided here to republish this responsum in its entirety to prove his opponents’ false allegations.
