A crowd of 300 people gathered at the Rabbinical College of America in Morristown, New Jersey, to partake in the Siyum Hashas performed by the bochur Menachem Wagner.
Wagner, the son of Rabbi Yakkov Wagner, the Menahel of Yeshivas Tiferes Bachurim in Morristown, took on the challenge of learning the entire 63 tractates of Talmud Bavli at the encouragement of his teachers in Morristown.
After many years, he has successfully completed the entire Shas – a rare achievement that takes some a lifetime to complete.
Joining the celebration were rabbonim, maggidei shiurim and fellow bochurim. Praising his accomplishment was the menahel Rabbi Chaim Schapiro wishing much success in his studies.
