    1. Title: Golem
      Author: Matthew Liebenberg ,

      I enjoyed the lecture but it seems to be incomplete and ends with the beginning of the story of Johan Sylvester.  Is it possible to get the end of the lecture?

      See page 5 of the preface and page 26 of the book Choshen Hamishpot discussed by Dr Leiman.
