A year since the 12th Siyum hashas of Daf Yomi at Metlife stadium, a year since start of 13th cycle
This Shabbos, Shabbos Nachamu, 13 Av 5773 יג אב תשע'ג will mark the first year anniversary since the 12th Siyum Hashas of Daf Hayomi at Metlife stadium. It was exactly a year ago in 2012 were many celebrated the Siyum and a year since many have joined the machzor for the first time. Its hard to believe that a year flew by (yes there was a Hurricane called Sandy), but for those learning the Daf, they already have learned, maseches Brachos, Shabbos, Eruvin and now in middle of Pesachim. The words of Rabbi Frand echo in our ears "Whats beyond your reach is within your grasp". Hopefully all those who started Brachos are still going strong. We can still join in the cycle. Here is the full video for those who want to relive the siyum experience.
