    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?

    2. Title: Golem
      Author: Dan Pekins ,

      It should be noted that Reb Yudel does indeed give credit to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for at least part of the Choshen story.

       

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

       

      One can see it here:

        R' Leiman mentions this in his published article on the topic.
