A large crowd of locals and bochurim from area yeshivos joined the Poconos Yeshiva for a Siyum Harambam this past Thursday night.
Making the siyum was Professor Shimon Silman from Crown Heights, who spoke of the stages in the coming of the Moshiach, and how they are coming to fruition before our eyes.
The bochurim then heard from Rabbi Shmuel Danziger, the mashgiach of Yeshivas Sha’ar Hamelech, a neighboring yeshiva. Rabbi Danziger told the bochurim that they great joy experienced by such a siyum is equivalent to the joy on Simchas Torah.
Also speaking were hanhala members Rabbi Menachem Mendel Sharf and Rabbi Shmuel Newman.
Following the official program, the bochurim broke into a dance, and then continued with a farbrengen until the early hours of the morning.
