  1. To all those that went (I couldn’t attend, I live WAY out of town):

    I’m curious?

    1) Did you learn anything new?
    2) Was there any practical advice offered?
    3) Do you feel that you gained anything from this event over-and-above what you might gain from attending the siyum hashas?

  2. AMAZING NIGHT!!! I was in Arthur Ashe. I don’t know how or where else to do this so I will say it here.

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank you to the organizers, the security, the police, the ticket sales, the advertisers, the sponsors, the people who prepared the bags, the audio visual people, the buses, the parking attendants and the list goes on and on.

    Thank you for providing me a night I will never ever forget

  3. It was a display of achdus and outpouring of emotion, a tremendous burst of chizuk from being together with so many yidden, I left feeling totally uplifted and closer to my ‘Creator’ as Rav Ephraim Wachsman put it. Not to mention the totality of the kiddush Hashem that was displayed.. if only all of my afternoons and evenings were spent involved in such meaningful pursuits… Me k’amchah Yisroel- Goy echad b’aretz!!
