Siyum HaShas - The completion of/start of the Talmudic learning cycle

Thanks to the kindness of a cousin, I had the privilege of attending the Siyum HaShas this evening in Madison Square Garden in New York City. Over 120,000 religious Jewish men and women took part in this celebration of the completion of/start of the Talmudic learning cycle, the Daf Yomi (page-a-day).

Pictures from the Siyum HaShas. Unfortunately my pocket camera was not up to taking as good a picture as I had hoped, given the lighting and size of the place.

It was an inspiring evening.
