On June 13, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz, the Inwood community held its second annual siyum haShas. The siyum is a project which promotes achdus, as the entire community joins together to learn the entire Shas. One of the highlights for this year’s siyum was the completion of a masechta by the boys of the community who each learned a few blatt of Masechtas Sukkah.
The guest speaker was Harav Doniel Neustadt, father-in-law of Harav Pinchus Weinberger, rav of Bais Tefila of Inwood. The community was also honored with the presence of Harav Simcha Bondy, rav of Kehilas Yesod Yosef of Inwood.
A delectable seudas mitzvah was enjoyed by all, together with singing and dancing in honor of this momentous occasion. The annual siyum has increased Torah learning throughout the Inwood community, with members already choosing a new masechta for the coming year. The campaign is spearheaded by R’ Yehuda Zachter, and the siyum was dedicated l’iluy nishmas Mrs. Zachter’s father, R’ Moshe Yitzchok ben R’ Meir Hakohen Krasner.
