Five years since 12th Siyum Hashas , Next Siyum in 2 1/2 years

Its been Five years since the 12th Siyum Hashas and start of 13th machzor of Daf Yomi at Metlife stadium. This Shabbos, Shabbos Veschanan Nachamu, 12Av 5777 August 5, 2017 will  mark the 5th year anniversary. The 13th Siyum Hashas is only 2 and a half years away!!!!
since the 12th Siyum Hashas of Daf  Hayomi at Metlife stadium.It was exactly five years ago in 2012 were many celebrated the Siyum and 5 years since lots of people have joined the machzor for the first time. Its hard to believe that 5 years flew by, but for those learning the Daf, they are about to complete seder nezikin finishing the three Bavos. 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.


  1. here is a recap from your blogging buddy somehowfrum

  2. Missing the last Siyum HaShas was a mistake, because I was unable to find a maariv minyan because everyone was at the siyum. Hopefully I will not make that mistake again.

    NEW! Sephardic Jews REJECT Reform Judaism:

    How a Reform Rabbi Became Orthodox (true story):

    Rambam Rejected Childless Messiah:

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz
    grew up Orthodox but later became secular.

    He said this about Orthodox Judaism,
    many years after he quit it:

    “I cannot leave my progeny any legacy comparable to the Orthodox commitment to, and intimate knowledge of, Jewish tradition and practice that my predecessors left me.

    Though I have not abandoned my Jewishness – far from it – I have also not carried on the tradition of daily religious observance and total immersion in the sources of the tradition.
    Sometimes I regret not having done so.”
