A letter to the staff of the Siyum Hashas held this week in London’s Wembley Arena has been published in a newspaper expressing admiration to the organizers and the participants.
In the letter shared on social media, Becky Syrett, Operations Manager of the SSE Arena in London, expressed her surprise and appreciation of the behavior of the close to 7,000 participants of the event marking the completion of the daily reading and study of one page of Talmud from the 2,711 set, which takes place every 7 years.
Syrett wrote that the stadium staff was “blown away” that there was “not a single incident” of “drunkenness, boisterous or rowdy behavior,” during the event, which she says in her 28 months of working at the arena at over 300 events, has never happened before.
What surprised her as well was the fact that not a single dangerous item was confiscated at the event.
Syrett also noted that her team was blown away by the amount of “thank yous” they received at the end of the evening.
“I am devastated that Siyum only takes place once every seven years,” she concluded. “This event was a delight for all of us.”
