    Why was the siyum hashas for the Daf Yomi made on 1/1? Was it right for the agudah to put yeshivas all over in a position to have learning cut short for their siyum?

    Why was the siyum hashas for the Daf Yomi made on 1/1? Since the actual end date was shabbos, they moved it back to a date when many people had off from work.

    Was it right for the agudah to put yeshivas all over in a position to have learning cut short for their siyum? Yeshivas had a right t say they wouldnt attend.

    Any day they made it would cause Yeshivos to lose time. What difference which day as far as that point is concerned.

    The last times siyum hashas was made in the winter, I’m pretty sure the program started at night.

    They could’ve made the event on Motzai Shabbos.

    1: Yes but they didnt have to try and outdo the 2012 event with the 2019 event. My bigger question is why did you wait until after the siyum to ask your question? Talk about being a monday morning quarterback!! Instead of askink your question here why not write your question to Rabbi Zweibel or directly to the Moetzes for a response?

    I can ask Rabbi Zweibel directly, if need be.

    “Why was the siyum hashas for the Daf Yomi made on 1/1? ”

    Because it was the closest date to the siyum that the stadium was available, with the added benefit that many people were off.

    “Was it right for the agudah to put yeshivas all over in a position to have learning cut short for their siyum?”

    Yes

    Thank you, moderators, for editing the OP.
    If you you were in traffic for #12 and #13, you’ll know why #13 was on a secular holiday. Also, as cold as it was on January 1 during the day, it would most likely have been worse at night. Motzai Shabbos is not an option for people coming from far away.

    Saturdays and Sundays are potential playoff dates. The stadium wouldn’t have been available M”S anyway.

    No excuse to make yeshivas end their seder early.

    Who says it has to be in a football stadium?

    I asked that question weeks ago and got the answer about availability. It took away from the event that it wasn’t really a siyum for everyone, though people did make a seudas mitzvah on Shabbos for the REAL siyum. While I can understand the logistics involved, and why they settled on Jan. 1, since when do yidden do things out of convenience? And how much rushing of the end of niddah had to be done to make the Hadaran? It couldn’t have been real Daf Yomi, could it?

    Not the first time in the 13 siyumim that it was done before the last day of the cycle. I am pretty sure in 1982 it was a week before the actual end of the cycle. It took place on 11/14/1982.

    “since when do yidden do things out of convenience? ”

    Frequently. Many mitzvos are locked in to a specific time and place. There is NO explicit halacha that governs the how, when or where or a siyum for daf yomi (or any other “siyum” for that matter). If the gadolim (represented by Agudah) decide that for reasons of cost, availability, safety etc. etc. to hold the siyuum on a secular holiday, thats fine.

    1 – you think there should be no Siyum altogether so that the yeshivos don’t end early?

    Joseph – No. So it after yeshiva/morning seder at least. Have it start at 3.

    When it’s a ticha d’tzibura.l, like this case.

    We all know that neither the giants nor jets are ever going to make it in the playoffs.

    So why didn’t all you Monday Morning Quarterbacks complain to Rabbi Zweibel before the event?
