The 40th Siyum Harambam will be celebrated with a grand event on Eastern Parkway, which will be closed by the NYPD for the event. Thousands of locals and guests are expected.
Thousands of chassidim and guests from far and wide are expected to participate in the Siyum celebration marking the conclusion of the 40th Rambam cycle. The Siyum will be held, b’ezras Hashem, this coming Sunday, on the auspicious day of Gimmel Tammuz, in front of 770. Eastern Parkway will be closed for the event.
The doors will open at 7:00 PM, and the program will begin at 7:30 PM.
Special guest speakers from New York and worldwide will address the crowd. We will sing the Rebbe’s niggunim together with Avraham Fried and Yossi Cohen’s Kapelle choir.
The timing of this Siyum coinciding, by Hashgacha Peratis, with Gimmel Tammuz. Chairman of the International Siyum HaRambam, Rabbi Shmuel Butman, points out that the fact we are going to be studying the laws of Moshiach and Melech HaMoshiach on the very day of Gimmel Tammuz obligates every chossid and mekushar to renew our commitment to Rambam study, and bring to the fulfillment of the final halacha, when the world will be filled with knowledge of Hashem as water covers the sea, with the complete geula.
