Mechina Siyum Gittin
On June 15th the Mechina celebrated a Siyum on Maseches Gittin. This annual event is to honor the 70+ Bochurim who learned extra Perakim in the Meseches and took Bechinos on them. To qualify as a Mesayaim they had to learn at least the first six Perakim. These Bochurim dedicated their free time to reaching this goal and many of them actually finished the entire Meseches. As the Menahel of the Mechina, Harav Simcha Cook, points out each year, there are also many Bochurim who choose to learn slower or be Miayen more into the Sugya that learned as many hours and with the same intensity as the Misaymim. To mark this occasion we were honored tha Harav Chaim Yehoshua Hoberman, the Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta of Long Beach, gracedus with his presence. He first said a Shiur to the Mechina Bochurim and then gave a Drasha at the Siyum, stressing the importance of writing down your chiddushim. Many parents and grandparents of the Mesaymim were in attendance Shepping Nachas from their children’s accomplishments.
