In a fascinating turn of events, organizers of the upcoming Mega Siyum HaRambam have just discovered that the grand Siyum will take place on the same day as the Rambam’s miraculous rescue, as mentioned in his personal writings. The Siyum, scheduled for Tuesday, 3 Sivan, May 23rd, will celebrate the completion of the study of the entire Mishneh Torah – Rambam.
In his personal writings, the Rambam recounts his miraculous rescue from a shipwreck on Sunday night, ג’ ימים לירח סיוון:
“בליל אחד בשבת, ג’ ימים לירח סיוון, יצאתי מן הים בשלום ובאתי לעכו ונצלתי מן השמד והגענו לארץ ישראל. יום זה נדרתי שיהיה יום ששון ושמחה…”
“On Sunday night, three days into the month of Sivan, I emerged from the sea in peace, arrived in Akko, and was saved from destruction. We reached the land of Israel. I vowed that this day would be a day of joy and celebration…”
The Rambam’s powerful account of survival and gratitude serves as a fitting backdrop to the Siyum’s celebration of dedication and commitment to Torah study. Now, his words are finally coming to fruition, as thousands of people worldwide are preparing to celebrate the completion of the study of the entire Mishneh Torah.
As the grand Siyum HaRambam approaches, thousands of people worldwide are eagerly preparing for the momentous occasion. The excitement is palpable as communities come together in anticipation of the grand celebration.
The Siyum HaRambam will take place on Eastern Parkway “In Front of 770,” replicating the historic Siyumei Horambam that occurred on Gimmel Tammuz 5781 and Lag B’omer 5782. Renowned Jewish singers Avraham Fried, Benny Friedman, Eli Marcus, and the Yingerlach Choir will perform at the grand musical program after the Siyum, uniting the spirit of the Rebbe and the Rambam in the Year of Hakhel. Leading rabbis and speakers will address the crowd, sharing their insights on the significance of the Siyum HaRambam. The Siyum will also feature multiple video presentations, bringing the teachings of the Rambam to life.
The Hakhel Siyum HaRambam is an important event in the Jewish calendar that celebrates dedication and commitment to Torah study. The organizers are inviting all community members to attend and participate in the celebration, which promises to be as innovative as it is uplifting and inspiring. “This is an event directly connected to the Rebbe and דער רבי בלייבט ניט קיין בעל חוב –the Rebbe does not remain in debt.”
The extraordinary coincidence of the Siyum’s date with the Rambam’s miraculous rescue only serves to heighten the sense of unity and celebration. As thousands prepare to commemorate this historic event, may it lead us to the Great Hakhel of “all Jewish men, women, and children” in Yerushalayim with the coming of Moshiach imminently.
