Between 1614 and 1617 Hagaon Harav Yom-Tov Lipmann Heller published a Mishnah commentary, the commentary - called "Tosfos Yom-Tov" "The addition of Yom-Tov" - quickly became established as one of the standard commentaries to the Mishnah, and is studied to this day.
Rabbi Heller served as a Rabbi and leader in many Jewish towns and villages between 1624 and 1654 including Mikulov, Vienna, Prague, Nemirov, Ludmir. His last post when he was elected as the head of the rabbinical court of Krakow where he served from 1643 until his death in 1654. Today, over 350 years later, there are thousands of descendents all over the world.
I am a direct decedent of Rabbi Heller and I am the founder of Machon Tosfos Yom-Tov whose goal is to spread the teachings of the Tosfos Yom-Tov.
So far we have published 5 volumes of Tosfos Yom-Tov with exciting reviews, comments, explanations, and annotations on the original commentary of the Tosfos Yom-Tov. Your donation will help thousands of Roshei Yeshiva, Scholars, and laymen around the world to enhance their joy of learning Mishnayos and enable them to study it in depht the same as Gemarah.
Our goal is to issue the next volume in June 2019 and to finish the entire Mishna in the forseeble future. In order to move forward we need to raise $10,000 by June 15 2019.
Our organization also issues a monthly publication to spread the teachings of Rabbi Heller.

May they merit seeing their children live, thrive and grow in Torah, see them to the marriage canopy and to the performance of good works, and to serve the Lord our God always in truth and innocence, and let us say AMEN!"
