Grand Siyum – Celebrating 100 Siyumim!
Mesivta Ateres Yaakov celebrated its annual Grand Siyum, recognizing 75 talmidim who completed 99 masechtos of Shas, or sedarim of Mishnayos, over the course of the school year. The Menahel, Rabbi Mordechai Yaffe, was mishtatef with his talmidim by being masayem Masechtas Gittin, bringing the grand total of siyumim to 100.
Over 150 parents, grandparents and relatives were invited to celebrate this achievement together with the masaymim and their Rabbeim. Upon arrival, a digital journal with messages from parents and Raebbeim to the masaymim was displayed and included pictures of the masaymim learning throughout the year.
