Wiliiamsburg, New York: Rav Matisyahu Salomon shlit”a, the Lakewood Mashgiach, will, iy”H, address Agudas Yisroel of America’s 46th Annual National Siyum Mishnayos, al shem Harav Yehoshua Silbermintz, zt”l.
The Siyum, taking place this Sunday, May 10, at Eden Palace in Williamsburg, will celebrate thousands of Mishnayos, learned throughout the year by elementary age yeshiva boys in the United States either through the Kesser Mishnayos program or at their local Pirchei branches.
Present as well, be”H, will be 30 boys who have learned all of Shisha Sidrei Mishna and who will take part in a special bechina preceeding the Siyum. They will also be honored with places at the dais, as well as a special gathering in their honor to be held in June, at which they will receive a Shas.
This year’s Siyum is dedicated to the memory of Rabbi Boruch Borchardt, zt”l, who served for many decades as executive director of Agudas Yisroel before his petira last year.
The Siyum will feature a special video presentation on the life of the Mirrer Rosh HaYeshiva, Rav Shmuel Berenbaum, zt”l
Rabbi Fishel Shachter, Rebbe at Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and renowned storyteller, will serve as the event’s Master of Ceremonies.
Divrei bracha will be delivered by Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel, executive vice president of Agudas Yisroel of America.
The Siyum Mishnayos, the largest event of its kind, has been inspiring children yearly since its inception 46 years ago. Mechanchim and baalei batim alike have warm memories of past Siyumei Mishnayos they themselves attended; now they take pride in the Siyumei Mishnayos-attendance of their children and grandchildren.
