Hadran: Siyyum Masechet Shabbat
During the first nine days of Av, it is customary not to eat meat (except for Shabbat). However, there is also a custom to celebrate the completion of a book of learning with a meal that typically would include meat. At aruchat erev (dinner) last evening, for both Tzad Aleph and Tzad Bet, Dr. Josh Kulp, our Rosh Beit Midrash, celebrated the completion of study of the entire Tractate of Shabbat. The tractate is 154 pages long — Yasher Koach Dr. Josh Kulp!
According to Josh, “You should definitely celebrate, let people know about what you’ve learned, and be happy that you had the privilege to spend time studying Talmud together with thousands of other people. Ketubot is one of the most well learned tractates of the Talmud…I hope you have enjoyed learning it as much as I have. I hope you will continue studying together with Daf Shevui for many years to come, in good health and in good cheer.”
