24 wagon loads of the Talmud burnt


                      24 wagon loads of the Talmud burnt                                


עש"ק פרשת חקת In the year 1244, they burned the Talmud in the main square of Paris. R. Yechiel of Paris had a talmid named 
Nicholas Donin שר"י, who became a משומד. He went to the pope accusing the Talmud of being against  
the נוצרים & אותו האיש.

R. Yechiel of Paris and R. Moshe miKutzi (סמ"ג) tried to defend the Talmud but to no success.

After the burning of the Talmud, R. Yechiel of Paris moved to עכו. Hence the first of the Ba’alei Tosfos in Eretz Yisroel.

The Maharam Mi Rottenberg wrote a  קינה about the burning of the Talmud. Ashkenazim say this   קינה
on Tisha B'av (שאלי שרופה באש -קינה מ"א

One of the powerful stanzas of the קינה.

               "אוריד דמעות עדי יהיו כנחל ויגיעו לקברות שני אציליך משה ואהרן בהר ההר ואשאל היש תורה חדשה בכן נשרפו גליליך"

"I will shed tears until they flow like a river and reach the graves of your two princes Moishe & Aaron who are resting on the 
mountain of Hor.
And I will ask them, Is there a Torah that is new and therefore your scrolls have been burnt"

R.Hillel Verona* writes the Talmud was burnt on the same square, the opponents of the Rambam burned the Moreh Nevuchim a
few years earlier.
They finally realized that they had wronged the Rambam.

*Talmid of R. Yonah who was originally an opponent of the Rambam.

Meshech Chochmo On Parshas Chukas

The Meshech Chochmo writes :

"The entire 40 years in the Midbar there wasn't a single רוצח בשוגג"

His proof is from the Pasuk (20:29)
ויבכו את אהרן -- כל בית ישראל .

Would there have been one רוצח in the ערי מקלט the Torah would not have written כל because the רוצח  would not have cried, he would have been happy to get out of the ערי מקלט .
Meshech Chochma


Did You Know (184)


According to Harav Hagaon Reb Yisroel Belsky Zt"l:

 If someone didn't bow down at "ואנחנו כורעים"  when saying עלינו,
must repeat the עלינו again and bow down. since this תפילה was created for the sole purpose of praising and bowing down to Hashem*
