In this week's FJJ, Mordy Mehlman, the publisher, writes a message to his readers about an experience he had in Poland, while visiting the grave of the Tosfos Yom Tov.
The Tosfos Yom Tov, Harav Yom Tov Lipmann Heller, lived in the late 1500's and early 1600's and wrote a commentary on the Mishnah known as the "Tosfos Yom Tov."
He was a talmud of the Maharal and what is little known was that he also studied books authored by non-Jews.
In fact in one of his drashas, (you won't see this in Artscroll) the Tosfos Yom Tov alludes to the "new astronomy" of Copernicus and Tyche Brahe. His drashas also show that he was interested in questions of arithmetic, astronomy, and natural science. His notes on the Giv'at Ha'Moreh prove that he occupied himself with philosophy.
Be that as it may, the Tosfos Yom Tov authored a "Mi Shebeirach" for those people that don't talk in shul, and most siddurim have it .... he claimed that the Chmielnicki slaughter took place because of Jews talking in shul!
Now, that this is now the new "craze, "not talking in Shul" and the remedy of all of Klall Yisroel's ills, Mordy Mehlman took a trip to Jewish blood-soaked Poland to pour hard earned Jewish money into the hands of the descendants of those who murdered and raped our ancestors and to visit the grave of the Tosfos Yom Tov.
He now describes the "vicious" anti-semitism he and his group experienced in Poland!
It is ironic that the Tosfos Yom Tov himself suffered untold horrors and torture in Europe! Harav Heller was the chief rabbi of Krakow during the above mentioned Chmielnicki slaughter of innocent Jewish men, women and children ....
and I am sure that if one had asked the Tosfos Yom Tov if Jews should visit his grave, thereby enriching blood-thirsty goyim, descendants of Chmielnicki, he would have vehemently protested and responded in the negative!
So this Mehlman takes a group of Jews to tour Poland!!
There are Jews in Yerushalyim throwing out other Jews from Shul, because they are in uniform protecting other Jewish lives .....
yet instead of screaming "Lo zu ha'derech," Jews spend money so they can fill the coffers of Jew hating Goyim...
Mehlman, writes about his bad experience in a Polish Coffee Shop!
Now guys take a deep breath and read the following:
This experience with a Polish goy that refused to serve him coffee, reminded him "of the Holocaust"!!!!!!
You know what reminds me of the Holocaust?????
A Jew sitting in a shul davening, "not talking in shul" and sits quietly while other Jews are throwing out another Jew in IDF uniform ....
that Mr. Mehlman reminds me of the Holocaust .....
