Siyum HaShas in Argentina
by Yated Ne'eman Staff
Argentina also had a large Siyum Hashas this year sponsored
by Agudas Yisroel. Participants saw film clips from the
worldwide siyums that had been held about a month earlier.
Since the last siyum, there has been a shiur sponsored by
Agudas Yisroel and given by HaRav Yisroel Feder, and after
this siyum four other communities announced that they were
starting Daf Yomi shiurim. The guest of honor was HaRav
Shmuel Kamenetsky, rosh yeshiva of Philadelphia Yeshiva. A
delegation from the US led by Rabbi Shmuel Bloom also took
part, as well as a group from the general Argentinean Jewish
community, AMIA. Distinguished roshei yeshiva and roshei
kollelim, including HaRav Shmuel Aryeh Levin (who also spoke)
were present, as well as rabbonim from Argentina and other
South American countries including Chile and Uruguay.
