The siyum, unlike past ones, is destined to be remembered. Before the current cycle began, few had present technology at their fingertips. In the last few years the accessibility of data to assist a person’s learning-on-the-go has exploded, with an ArtScroll app and a virtual shuir on an iPad. But this class still offers students the opportunity to learn Shas the way it’s been studied for many years: as a cohesive group. The daily participants have bound together and share life’s highs and lows, participating in everything from brisim and bar mitzvahs to levayahs and shiva calls.
To celebrate the occasion original shiur members Elliot Krischer and Benjy Krischer, along with their families, will sponsor this Monday’s siyum in memory of their dear parents, who were niftar this past year. The LIRR plans to reserve the last car for the program and celebration. Gourmet Glatt will sponsor the collation. And former maggidei shiur Rabbi Pesach Lerner, Rabbi Shmuel Bloom and Agudath Israel representatives will join the festivities.
The mobile class will learn Maseches Beitzah to start the new cycle of learning.
