Rabbi Shlomo Gertzulin, Siyum HaShas Chief Operating Officer spoke with YWN and stated that people are encouraged to bring along rain gear – and the stadium has made an exception – and WILL allow umbrellas into the stadium. You may want to bring along a hand towel to dry your seat, should it be wet. In case of any rain during the Siyum, tens of thousands of ponchos are prepared for attendees.
Agudath Israel of America, MetLife Stadium officials, and the New Jersey State Police are doing everything possible to ensure that the event goes as smoothly as possible, and that security is their number one priority.

 The current weather forecast for Wednesday August 1st calls for 50% chance of thunderstorms. Siyum Organizers are monitoring the weather conditions, still hopeful to have the Siyum IYH on the expected day. If weather conditions will not be favorable at the time of the Siyum Hashas it will be postponed to  the next day Thursday August 2nd which has been the Rain date. This decision will be made on the Morning of Wednesday August 1st at 8:00 AM.

You can bet The Agudah will use all media outlets at its disposal to notify Siyum hashas attendees, in the event that the Siyum is rained out and postponed to the next day.

Any sponsors for ponchos with Binoculars too??


  1. As they say, it will be a game time decision.

  2. OY I have a Chasunah Thursday night.

  3. I think it's the same forecast for Thursday. What we gonna do?

  4. Their use of media outlets will be most helpful for those of us flying in Wednesday morning...

  5. Just bring your umbrellas and ponchos and enjoy the event. If its the same weather for Thursday it will not be postponed.

  6. i hope i didn't pay to sit behind someone with an umbrella

    1. Thats exactly what the person sitting behind you is saying!!
