Heller, Yom Tov Lipmann

(1579-1660)
   Bavarian talmudist. He became dayyan in Prague at the age of 18. In 1629 he was fined for libelling the state and Christianity, and was forbidden to act as a rabbi in Prague. Later he served several communities. During the Chmielnicki massacres of 1648-9 he lived in Krakow, where he composed penitential psalms and commemorative prayers for those who died. His Tosaphot Yom Tov is a commentary on the Mishnah. He also wrote studies of religious subjects as well as works on mathematics and natural science.
