The Women’s Siyum HaShas event, that we created and produced for the Hadran organization, is a historical event and the first of its kind to ever take place. Once every seven and a half years the Jewish world celebrates Syum Hashas – the end of daily Talmud page reading cycle. These celebrations used to be for men only. On January 2020, Hadran hosted the first international Siyum HaShas for Women in Jerusalem, with over 3,300 women in attendance.
The exciting event included short key-note speeches in a form of fast dialogue, videos, and an elevating reading ceremony of the last page of the cycle. At the end of the event, the participants all came together in collective singing with Koolulam, of the song “When the Sun Passes Me” by Yoram Taharlev and Hanan Yovel. The message was clear – we have reached times when Jewish women in Israel and around the world study and gain the Jewish knowledge that once was for men alone. The amazing power and energy of the event was also broadcasted live via streaming to thousands of Talmud reading women across the globe.
