My Dad Finished Shas Again: Siyum HaShas 2012
My dad for the second time in 15 years finished the Talmud (Shas) under the Daf Yomi schedule. To celebrate, like he did 7.5 years ago, he took a bunch of us to the massive Siyum HaShas at MetLife Stadium last night (although 7.5 years ago it was in Nets Stadium and indoors, this time in Giants/Jets new stadium).
There were about 92,000 Jews all in one place. It was pretty wild.
Here are a few pictures:

92,000 People Dancing:
At Least ~500 people using our iPhone Siddur there:

FYI, might be a good time to download the Artscroll Shas to kick off the new Daf Yomi?
