A great crowd of thousands is expected tonight at the Siyum Harambam Haolomi, as it was called by the Rebbe, which will take place on Tuesday, 6 Tishrei, (September 26) in Oholei Torah – 667 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY. at 7:30 PM.
The event will constitute a “Triple Celebration” completed for the 36th time (2 times Chai) by those who studied three chapters of Rambam a day, the 12th time by those who studied in chapter a day and Sefer Hamitzvos every day.
The grand siyum will have a special dimension this year as it will be held on 6 Tishrei, the 53rd yahrtzeit of Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson, mother of the Rebbe, organizers said.
The program will include words of Torah from renowned rabbonim and niggunim sung by a Lubavitch 40-Voice Boys Choir, under the leadership of Fitche Benshimon.
In addition to chassidim and bochurim, women are invited to partake in the celebration as well. There will be a special program for children to encourage their study of Sefer Hamitzvos.
