My Machberes

Mach-081012-Siyum

This year’s commemoration was marked by hundreds of local and visiting participants who fully appreciated the historical significance of that particular observance in the very same study hall.

The awe-inspiring Daf Yomi Siyum HaSahas was the culmination of years of planning and work by many truly dedicated people. Many of them comprise Agudath Israel’s Siyum Hashas Steering Committee, Siyum Hashas Executive Committee, and Daf Yomi Commission. Such colossal success could only be possible with the hard work of many people. They all deserve to be highlighted.

Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel, Agudah Executive Vice President, and Rabbi Shlomo Gertzulin, Vice President for Finance, and their assembled team are owed major appreciation for carrying the responsibility of such a grand project. Thank you to Elly Kleinman of Americare and its tradition of caring – for caring enough to make this Siyum the most successful ever. And of course to Rabbi Meir Zlotowitz, Rabbi Nosson Scherman and the entire ArtScroll team, whose monumental contribution to Torah scholarship is manifested throughout the world, day by day and page by page.

In the weeks to come we hope to list many of the Daf Yomi resources, publications, services, and materials that have been developed and have contributed greatly to further the study of Daf Yomi.

Last month we outlined how a few years after Judah Touro’s death a public movement was inaugurated by the citizens of New Orleans to erect a monument to his memory, and that opposition to this tribute came from a number of rabbis throughout the country who claimed that Judaism forbade the erection of any graven […]

Marceau suggested a dark reason for his wordless art: “The people who came back from the [concentration] camps were never able to talk about it…. My name is Mangel. I am Jewish. Perhaps that, unconsciously, contributed towards my choice of silence.”

Anna Henriques, who hopes to one day head back to Jamaica, says, “Rabbi Raskin must be willing to respect what exists in Jamaica. The way to the future is to gently bring in the traditions of the past and at the same time embrace the idiosyncrasies of the Jamaican people.”
