As the upcoming Siyum Hashas is scheduled for January 1st, does anybody know what the plans are if it snows etc?June 21, 2019 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1745311
Torah is stronger than the weather. The weather is controlled by the Torah; the Torah is not controlled by the weather.June 21, 2019 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1745312
If HKBH sends a blizzard, then the party was not meant to be.June 21, 2019 9:47 am at 9:47 am #1745314
At the last siyum, I speculated that someone would have to build a larger covered stadium for the upcoming one. Obviously that didn’t happen, and unlike the third Bais Hamikdash, one is not suddenly going to be created by Hashem. I’m guessing that the organizers are betting on the zechus of the attendees preventing inclement weather.June 21, 2019 10:05 am at 10:05 am #1745319

What do football fans do?
We should be able to have at least as much mesiras nefesh.June 21, 2019 12:53 pm at 12:53 pm #1745323
The last one was in early August and it rained all day. It only began to dry as the program got underway, which was late due to the rain. You have to do what you can do, and leave the rest to Hashem.June 21, 2019 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1745328
“does anybody know what the plans are if it snows etc?”
Same thing football fans do. bundle up.June 21, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1745329

How do you know? Maybe the siyum will be held at the rebuilt Beis Hamikdash.June 21, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1745330
if you want to make afew bucks, pitch a merchandising plan to the agudah. stadium blankets, caps, banners $12 beers in aguda logo mugs.June 21, 2019 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1745331
Jews control the weather…I am not worried about itJune 21, 2019 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1745407
As the upcoming Siyum Hashas is scheduled for January 1st, does anybody know what the plans are if it snows etc? The Aguda has not disclosed any yet.June 21, 2019 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1745411
A few years ago when the Super Bowl was at the same location, the same question was asked by all of the media. With the super bowl it’s a bit different since they always want the best weather for the game. So the games are either in warm weather climates or in a dome somewhere. So it was a big deal to put the Superbowl in NYC.
What happened at the Superbowl? If you remember the week before the Superbowl it was freezing. Then the DAY of the Superbowl came and the weather was great!
I have a funny feeling the weather will work out for the Siyum Hashas! If not bundle up with some winter hats and gloves and you will be good to go. No biggie unless you are coming from Florida for the Siyum 🙂June 21, 2019 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #1745421
APY: You don’t think that Aguda has already been on to that for a long time? You won’t be pitching anything to them that’s not already being pushed (except for the beer part maybe).June 21, 2019 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1745448
The privileged will still have their exclusive suites.June 21, 2019 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1745449

Do they have those giant foam hands that you put on your hand or a stick?June 21, 2019 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #1745439
Does Chabad and Satmar participate in the Daf Yomi system and in the Siyum HaShas?June 21, 2019 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1745435
Cold is one thing. You can always bundle up. But what happens if there is a bad snow storm? Do you think there is a different date scheduled in case of really had weather?June 22, 2019 11:09 pm at 11:09 pm #1745468
They should have chosen an indoor exhibition centre like the Javits centre. You cant expect people to enjoy a Siyum in the outdoors even if it’s not raining or snowing.June 23, 2019 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1745500
The Javits center, MSG or the Barclays is not big enough. Met Life stadium holds almost 90,000 peopleJune 23, 2019 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1745506
What’s the plan for the Gedolim ex: Hagaon R Dovid Feinstein or Hagaon R Shmuel Kamenetsky. Do they expect them to sit in 20F weather?June 23, 2019 1:02 am at 1:02 am #1745518

Behaloscha is the perfect week for this thread, as we start a span of parshiyos with klal Yisroel’s constant kvetching.
Its interesting to see how some things don’t change
Joseph Satmar does not, I think neither does chabad, but I a, less familiar with them and their shitosJune 23, 2019 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #1745785
Chabad is not against Daf Yomi, but it’s an Aguda thing, and Chabad stayed out of the Aguda in solidarity with Reb Chaim Brisker, so it was never a thing there.June 24, 2019 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1746167
Also, there are fewer big “bowl games” among the top college football teams still played on New Years Day. Just the Rose Bowl and one or two others. The College football championship is not scheduled until January 13th in New Orleans (hopefully warmer than NYC). Very few (if any) of the chashuvah rabbonim and askanim invited to speak are likely to be big football fans anyway and there were no big games scheduled at MetLife Stadium for the same reason……who would risk the lousy weather, snowstorm etc. Thus, aside from the capacity of the stadium, Agudah probably got a great price for rental of the facility. I’m sure the gabboim of the older rabbonim will make sure they are dressed warmly in fleece parkas if it is cold and there will probably be some indirect propane heaters directed to the stage. Also, they are very good at shoveling the snow off the open seating areas so unless the snow is coming down heavily just before the siyum begins, you will probably be able to get to your seats without snowshoes.June 24, 2019 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1746192
The ones who plan this event have a suite with exclusive catering.June 24, 2019 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1746193
Zehavasdad there’s no need for it to be in an arena, where sports and dirty music is played. There are better ways of doing this.June 24, 2019 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1746206
Brisk doesn’t do Daf Yomi?June 24, 2019 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #1746285
There is a need, to hose the large crowd of lomdei Troah and those who honor lomdei Torah
don’t forget, this was foreseen millenia ago Megilla 6a.

Ubiquiton: did you mean house instead of hose?August 26, 2019 9:41 am at 9:41 am #1779178
You can do what I did (last time too) and buy seats under the overhang. They are only $100. Last time I was 3 rows back from the rain that stopped just as things were starting.August 26, 2019 11:39 am at 11:39 am #1779211
Is there going to be security like at a football game?August 29, 2019 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #1781397
Probably much more security than a football game, considering its a high profile target to anyone who doesn’t like Jews….
