The following song is presented by the No Talking in Shul movement in honor of the yahrtzeit of the Tosafos Yom Tov, Rav Yom Tov Lipman Heller zt”l.

The Tosafos Yom Tov, after the Gezeiros Tach V’Tat, famously wrote a Mi Shebeirach that states: “May Hashem….bless he who guards his mouth and tongue from talking during prayer…”

The Tosafos Yom Tov brought attention to the importance of remaining silent in a house of tefillah. He attributed various tragedies to those who were not vigilant in this regard.

The following song was written and composed by Motty Illowitz, sung by Shauly Waldner and the Mezamrim Choir, and arranged by Ruli Ezrachi.

Before he started working on his monumental “Tosafos Yom Tov” commentary on the Mishnayos — when he was in his low twenties — HaGaon HaRav Yom Tov Lipman HaLevi Heller ZT”L completed and published his Sefer “Tzuras HaBayis,” a clear and detailed explanation of the Bais HaMikdash HaShlishi in accordance with RASH”I on Sefer Yechezkel, Chap. 40-43.

    This was before the invention of printing. Unfortunately, the RASH”I manuscripts on Yechezkel were (and still are today) full of numerous copyist errors.

    Based on the work of the Tosafos Yom Tov ZT”L and using professional software, I was Zocheh — with Siyata DiShmaya — to make a 3D computer model of the Bais HaMikdash III:

  2. According to the leading Rabbanim of the generations (including HaRav Yitzchak Abarbanel ZT”L & HaRav Chaim Kanievsky SHLIT”A), making models and drawings of the Mishkan and the Batei HaMikdash — or just viewing and studyng them — is a very special Mitzvah.
