Communities Worldwide Mark Talmudic Studies

August 11, 2008
Jewish communities around the world turned to Torah celebrations last week in order to add a measure of joy to the nine day mourning period ending with Tisha B’Av, the anniversary of the destruction of both Holy Temples in Jerusalem. Known as a siyum, each celebration marked a community member’s completion of studying one of the Talmud’s tractates. The Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, encouraged such celebrations and emphasized that they should continue until the 15th of the Hebrew month of Av, which this year occurs Aug. 16.

Hundreds of people turned out for the siyum at the Chabad-Lubavitch synagogue in Tel Aviv, Israel’s Geulat Yisrael neighborhood. Organized by Rabbi Yitzchok Be’er, program director at Chabad-Lubavitch of Tel Aviv, the seminar included a discussion of the laws of the Holy Temple and the building of the Third Holy Temple during the Messianic Era.
