The Invented Yom Tov

Invented Yom Tov

In the Sefer טעמי המנהגים (p262)  it says:

  “The Yahrzeit  of the ר' מאיר, is not mentioned anywhere.  People recently made up a new YomTov as if the Yahrzeit is on פסח שני. 

It is  known their whole  intention  was, to make money by inventing another Hillula.”

He also quotes a letter from the איש האמת ר' מאטיל סלאנימר זצ"ל
who harshly criticizes them  for being עובר בל תוסיף by inventing this new Yom Tov.

The שדי חמד
אסיפת דינים מערכת א"י wrote a letter to the Sephardic Chachamim in T’verya, asking for the source of the new celebration, the "Hillula of ר' מאיר".

On  earlier celebrations (Lag Baomer) the Rabonei Ashkenaz (Chasam Sofer Shoel Umeishiv etc.)  have complaints &  are pained and now we come up with a new Hillula”.

The Sephardi Chachamim answered,  even though
the Yahrzeit of ר' מאיר is not known, it is still proper to do the Hilulla to raise funds for the Bais Midrash built at the Tzion.

The שדי חמד didn’t accept their argument.

In the לוח דבר בעתו ( M.Genuth), on the 14th Iyar
he entered הילולת ר' מאיר בעל הנס
a few lines later in smaller letters he writes "There
is no מסורה for the day of the Petirah (ר'מאיר)".
