On the evening of Shushan Purim, the Montreal Jewish community gathered in large numbers for the central Siyum HaRambam celebration.

The event took place in the grand hall of Shomrei Laboker shul, attended by numerous city residents, including esteemed rabbonim including head shliach Rabbi Berel Mochkin, Rabbi Berel Bell, Rabbi Dovid Banon, Rabbi Leibel Kaplan, Rabbi Moshe Shtern, Rabbi Yechiel Meir Katz, Rabbi Michoel Dahan, Rabbi Shmuel Shochet, and others.

Rabbi Shmuel Kramer of the Tomchei Temimim Yeshiva masterfully led the ceremony, marking forty years since the Rebbe’s sacred institution of the Rambam study cycle.

The event commenced with Tehillim led by Rabbi Berel Mochkin, head shliach of Quebec, followed by a tzedaka in light of the situation in Eretz Yisroel. Rabbi Dovid Banon, a community rov and shliach, as well as a member of the city’s Beis Din, conducted the Siyum HaRambam.

Afterwards, Mr. Chaim Shpigelman, a well-known businessman in Montreal, shared his first completion of the Rambam’s cycle according to the three-chapters-a-day schedule. He warmly encouraged everyone on the blessings he received in all matters of business through daily Rambam study.

Rabbi Yechiel Meir Katz from Dzhikov, one of Montreal’s distinguished rabbonim, followed, and then Rabbi Berel Bell, the rov and mara d’asra of the central Anash shul and member of the city’s Beis Din, initiated the start of the forty-fourth cycle.

The evening’s keynote address was delivered by the honored guest, Rabbi Mendel Cohen, shliach in Sacramento, California. He spoke passionately about the importance of studying and adhering to the Rebbe’s holy takana of daily Rambam study.

Many attendees remained for a chassidishe farbrengen that lasted into the early hours of the morning, further solidifying their commitment to this sacred learning and its continued impact on the community.
