Chabad Of South Broward Holds Siyum

South Broward Chabad holds siyum.

South Broward Chabad holds siyum.

A siyum in honor of the conclusion of Seder Zeraim, the first of six orders of the Mishnah, was held on April 24, Iyar 2, at the Chabad of South Broward located in Hallandale Beach. The Mishnah is the basis of the Oral Torah. Zeraim deals primarily with agricultural laws.

Iyar 2, the date of the event, commemorates the birthday of Rabbi Shmuel Schneersohn, the fourth Lubavitcher Rebbe, known as the Rebbe Maharash (1834-1882). Iyar 2 also marked the day 17 years ago that the eleven months of Kaddish for the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M Schneerson (1902-1994) was completed.

Every morning after the second minyan, a Mishnah is studied in the shul. Dubbed the “New York Mishnah,” this small daily class enables participants to fulfill the mitzvah, even if they’re rushing to work.

The study began three years ago, at first with five tractates. The first letter of the five tractates spelled out Yisroel, in memory of the late brother of Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, Rabbi Yisroel Tennenhaus, z”l. After the first five tractates were concluded, the study of Zeraim began.
