Biography of Lipman Heller, "... the 17th century Torah giant whose historical title of "Tosfos Yom Tov" reflects universal reverence for the most famous of his many Torah commentaries. On the one hand it is a fascinating chronicle of the events in the trial-filled life of this tzaddik, as related in his "Megilas Eivah" and the addendum of his son. But it has also made a historic contribution of tracing the lineage of the thousands of descendants of this tzaddik throughout the world." (p. 3) Lipman Heller served in Prague, in Vienna, and in Crakow. Descendants lived in eastern Europe, in Israel, in the United States, and elsewhere.
