The Joys of Torah

The Siyum Hashas tonight was a perfect capstone to the day. Crowds of people from all over the world joined together because so many men took it upon themselves to take time out of their days to learn Torah Sheba'al Peh. We were mikabel ol malchus shamayim (accepted the yoke of Hashem) at the Siyum, and there was dancing and singing. I can only wonder what the security guards and Collusium personnel thought of it.

It was absolutely amazing, and I am so pround to have been part of the event.
May we have the next one in Yerushalayim at the Bais Hamikdash.

Edit #2: It doesn't make it as strong, but you're right, TPE. I of all people should know better than to fabricate data..

You probably meant Torah SheBeAlPeh.

Agreed, it was great. Far better than the class I missed would have been ;)

I thought about what the security personel thought as well. There was even a photographer at the Baltimore one, but nothing showed up in The Sun the next day...Wonder why not?

Too tame. A bunch of religous Jews getting together to celebrate the study of their religion? Who'd buy that?
;)
