As it did last year , the Institute has announced that, in honor of the Gaon’s approaching yahrzeit on the 3rd of Iyar, it is affording the public a special opportunity to fulfill the Maharal Tzintz’s wishes and secure his beracha of “I shall be his advocate.”
The following four seforim are currently being worked on, and are being readied for print at various points during the coming year:
Sefer Maayanei HaChachma on Bava Metzia, Chelek Bais and Daled Sefer Yayin Hamesameach, on Hilchos Yayin Nesech Pirkei Avos with the commentary of the Maharal Tzintz
For each sefer, there is a separate committee of talmidei chachomim, who review it with great thoroughness and professionalism. This is the type of printing to which the Gaon was doubtless referring when he spoke of“those who would exert themselves to print [the seforim]” And the Gaon’s holy promise to be a meilitz yosher for all those who are of assistance in this undertaking will certain apply to such an effort, which will help ensure that his works will appear in a beautiful, error-free and easy-to-understand format, and will be spread worldwide.
For a donation of $400, the contributor has a zechus in the printing of a total of 18 of the above seforim, which will be distributed free of charge to the institutions (yeshivos, battei medrash, etc). In addition, the donor himself will also receive one copy of each of the four seforim. For $720, the donor will have a zechus in the printing of a total of 36 of the above seforim. The donor can send us a list of Batei Medrashim, Kollelim and Yeshivas, and the Machon will add it to their steady list, where all Seforim are being sent.
As an additional gift, the contributor will also receive a copy of the sefer“M’lo Ho’Omer” on Megilas Rus. (If desired, a sefer on one of the other megillos may be substituted.) Please note: The institutions designated by the donor will be put on a permanent list, which entitles them to all past seforim issued by the Machon, as well as all future seforim that the Machon will iy”H publish.
Moreover, the donor can honor or memorialize loved ones; dedications will be printed in the back of the seforim.As each sefer is ready to be printed, the donor will be contacted and will be askedto submit the text he would like to be inscribed in the seforim (if he has not already submitted it). It is therefore essential that the donor submit all his contact information (name, address, phone numbers, fax number, email address, etc.) so that the Machon can get in touch with him.
Another important benefit to contributors: During the week of the yahrzeit (3 Iyar), there will be present at the tzion of the Gaon in Warsawa group of select bnei Torah who devote themselves to the publication of the Maharal Tzintz’s seforim. The scholars will read kvitlach submitted by donors, pleading for Heavenly mercy on their behalf, and asking that the tzaddik remember and fulfill his promise. (Kvitlach can be submitted by mail, phone or fax; the office address, phone and fax numbers are listed at the end of this article. The office will have a fax line to Warsaw, and will fax kvitlach there, so that they can be read at the tzion.)
It is rare that a sage should make a clear promise to be a meilitz yosher for someone. This is an exceptional and precious opportunity to secure the help of a great tzaddik. In fact, many who purchased sets last yearsaw great and extraordinary yeshuos. Businesspeople witnessed exceptional success in their business, and have thus been encouraged to contribute again and again. Some simply give their credit card information to Machon Mahral Tzintz, and before every business deal, they call the Institute and authorize a donation via the card. Others similarly make a contribution regularly in order to succeed in business.
