90,000 to gather in N.J. stadium for completion of Talmud


Ninety thousand people are expected to gather in MetLife Stadium in New Jersey to celebrate the completion of the Talmud study cycle.

The 12th siyum hashas will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the East Rutherford stadium, the home of the Giants and Jets football teams.

Attendees are finishing a program called Daf Yomi, in which participants study a double-sided page of Talmud per day until they finish the entire work of nearly 3,000 pages. The cycle is completed every 7 1/2 years. Participants learn the same page on the same day.

According to Business Wire, attendees at the stadium will have come from as far away as Australia. The ceremony will be simulcast to 80 cities in 15 countries.
