Last Monday, 700 Modiin residents attended the city-wide Siyum Hashas, marking the end of a study cycle covering the entire Talmud. This event occurs only once every seven and a half years.
14 synagogues in Modiin, Maccabim, and Reut participated in the Daf Yomi cycle. The celebration took place in the beit midrash of the Lapid Modiin high school, together with notable guests Rav Yisrael Meir Lau and Rav Bakshi Doron. Also in attendance wer Rav Elcharar, Rav David Lau, and Rav Chikutai. The Shirat Modiin choir and the Shir VeShivcha Band provided musical accompaniment for the event. At the end of the event, certificates were passed out to the 200 Daf Yomi participants who finished the study.
In the previous round of Daf Yomi, seven and a half years ago, only 30 residents finished the learning cycle, compared to 200 this time around. More residents are invited to join in with the learning, and to participate in the next siyum.
