|Rav Moshe Feinstein: Thanking For A Loan In The Dedication Of A Sefer|
It is forbidden for a borrower to say thank you to the lender because this is considered lending with interest. Ribbis Devarim is forbidden even though it is only words and not a monetary. Based on this Rav Moshe Feinstein was asked (YD1:80), if someone borrowed money to publish a Sefer, may the Michaber thank the lender in the Sefer for making the publication possible?
