6 Elul Rav Yom Tov Lipman HaLevi Heller 
    He was born in 5339 (1579) and passed away in 5414 (1654). One of the great Torah leaders of Germany and Poland, a Rav and author. He composed the commentary to the Mishnah entitled “Tosfos Yom Tov”. In his youth he learned with the Maharal of Prague (Rebbe Yehuda Levow). In addition to his great expertise in the entire Talmud and Halachic Codifiers, he also delved into the Kabbala, philosophy and Hebrew grammar. He achieved heights in mathematics, astronomy and natural science. At the age of 18 he was appointed to become a Rabbinical Judge in Prague, in the Beit Din of the Maharal’s son. In this position he served for 28 years. In 1625 he was chosen to be the Rav of Nicholsburg, but six months later he accepted a position as the Head of the Beit Din in Vienna. His enemies brought a false accusation against him to the Kaiser, accusing him of mocking the state and deprecating Christianity in his written works. In 1629 he was imprisoned and found guilty of refusing the orders of the Pope to burn the Babylonian Talmud, for instead of doing so he had published a commentary on the Talmud. He was condemned to death by the state court. However, after appeals were made, the Kaiser commuted the sentence to paying a huge fine and house arrest. He made the day of his imprisonment, the 5th of Tammuz, a day of fasting for his descendents. In 1631 he moved to Poland and dwelt in Lublin, Brisk, Nemirov and Ludmir. He sought to strengthen the Cherem (excommunication) and Takanah (decree) that had been made fifty years previously to prohibit the practice of purchasing the position of Rav in a community for money. His enemies again slandered against him to the Gentile authorities, and he was driven out of Ludmir. This evil decree was rescinded by efforts of his supporters and he returned. In 1643 he was appointed the Rav of Krakow, and a few years later became a Rosh HaYeshiva in Krakow as well. His other works include: “Tuv Taam” and “Toras HaAsham”.

He was also the Rav in a number of different places. In 1856 he became the Rav of Siget. He founded a large yeshiva after arriving in Siget. His works include: “Yitav Lev,” “Yitav Panim” and “Avnei Tzedek”.

6 Elul Rav Yechezkel Sarna 
    Born in 5649 (1889) and passed away in Yerushalym in 5729 (1969). He was one of the Torah leaders in Eretz Yisrael and one of the most important Roshei HaYeshivot, serving as the Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshivat Chevron for over 40 years. He learned in Yeshivat Slabodka, where he was known as the “genius from Grodna”. He also learned with the Chofetz Chaim. Due to his incredible ability and sharpness the Rosh HaYeshiva of Slabodka chose him to be his son-in-law. In 1924, when the Roshei HaYeshiva of Slabodka decided to open a branch of the Yeshiva in Eretz Yisrael, they sent Rav Sarna to choose the appropriate place. He chose Chevron, and in 1927 became the Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshivat Kenneset Yisrael in Chevron. After the riots in Chevron in Tarpa’’t – 5689 (1929), he moved the Yeshiva to Yerushalym, where it is still known as Yeshivas Chevron. Reb Yechezkel took a great interest in public affairs. He was the Head of the Vaad HaYeshivot and a member of the Council of Torah Sages of Agudas Yisrael. His works include: a commentary to the mussar classic “Orchos Chaim” and a commentary to the “Mesilas Yesharim.” He also left behind many manuscripts in Halacha and Mussar.

6 Elul Rav Yehuda Briel 
    He was born in 5403 (1643) and passed away in 5482 (1722). One of the great Torah leaders of Italy, the Rav and Head of the Beit Din in Manatova. He was a commentator on the Tanach, a Posek and a polemist. He served for 25 years as the Rav of Manatova until his death. He was considered to be one of the greatest of his generation. At the age of 25 he already was capable of writing Responsa to decide issues in Jewish Law, which were sent to him by the greatest in the generation. He led a large Yeshiva and had many students. In a great dispute of the time he supported the Chacham Tzvi in making a Cherem (excommunication) against a follower of Shabtai Tzvi (the false Messiah) by the name of Nechemiah Chiyon. He wrote public letters of disputation in which he expressed his sharp opposition to Chiyon, and these letters carried great weight in his time. His many letters are published in a collection entitled: “Klali HaDikduk”. The rest of his writings remain in manuscript. He also wrote poetry, songs, and translated the ethical teachings of the Roman philosopher Seneca from Latin to Hebrew.
