    This past week, hundreds of individuals from our community completed learning Mesichta Yuma and began Mesichta Sukkah. 300 people packed into Lubavitch Yeshiva yesterday to celebrate the achievement.

    Whereas in the past, each class or Shul with a daily Shiur would have made a private Siyum at their Shul and individuals learning at home or with Chavrusos would also have done a private Siyum, this year, as the Siyum was in close proximity to the Nine days in which the Rebbe requests large public Siyumim, the initiative was taken to host a collective Siyum and to give proper recognition to the hundreds of individuals who learn a daily daf and especially to the Magidei Shiurim who spend several hours a day preparing to give  these classes.

    The concept of organizing a collective Siyum was first suggested by Rabbi Beryl Junik, whose grandfather, Rabbi Naftali Junik was one of the founders of the Daf Yomi Shiur in Montreal, which was given over by Harav Avrohom Karp ob”m.

    After discussing it with his partners, Rabbis Shloimie Greenwald and Zalmy Cohen of the Unity Sefer Torah and Hatzalathon Unity concerts, they approached Rabbi Lazer Avtzon of the Association of Crown Heights Shuls to organize the evening.

    After reaching out to all the Shuls and other known Shiurim/ Chavrusos, Rabbi Avtzon solicited the help of Rabbi Avrohom Rutban of Irgun Torah who already organizes and sponsors many Shiurim in Crown Heights to help plan the evening.

    Last night’s Siyum will honored Rabbis Fishel Oster, Hirshel Lustig, Zalman Shanowitz, Shea Werner, Alex Heppenheimer, Mordechai Rozenstein and Shlomo Holtzberg, as well as all their Talmidim.

    It also paid tribute to the many private Chavrusos and Shiurim which take place daily around Crown Heights.

    Rabbi Avrohom Yehoshua Kenig of Tzeirei Hadaf, an organization which helps bfacilitate the daily learning and who is co-sponsoring the evening will present new Gemaras on Mesichta Sukkah to all those who are learning the daily daf.

    Beautiful live entertainment was provided by the world renowned Chazan Aryeh Leib Hurwitz accompanied by the Shira Choir.
