Gedolei Torah, Rabbis, and Communal Leaders from all over Europe have already said they plan to attend the Dirshu World Siyum outside London.
Registration for the unique event, which will take place this year in a historic estate in the suburbs of London, is well underway ** The event will be led by Gedolei Yisroel, and will include the rabbis of all Dirshu chapters throughout Europe ** “It will be a historic Shabbos, culminating with a Siyum HaShas – Daf Yomi in full splendor and glory,” say Dirshu organizers ** Registration for the uplifting Shabbos is open to non-Dirshu members as well
It is slated to be one of the most historic events in the history of Jewish Europe: Hundreds of Torah leaders will gather for a tremendous, uplifting Shabbos convention in a huge estate in the suburbs of London. Participating will be rabbonim, dayanim, and educators from all the Torah communities throughout all of Europe. From Friday to Sunday, the attendees will enjoy hours of Torah learning, of spirituality, and of love of Torah, culminating with a glorious Siyum HaShas to which Jews from all over the continent will stream.
The Dirshu Convention will take place on Shabbos Parshas Vay’chi, starting Friday, Jan. 11, 2020. Aside from hospitality and splendor in accordance with the best of Dirshu tradition, the event will also be a spiritual Torah experience of the highest order. Drashos (sermons) and lectures by major Torah scholars from all over the world will be delivered, and Hassidic music choirs and singers of spirit will delight the important invitees. Dirshu management sources say they decided to hold the event at a particularly spacious hotel in order to allow even those who are not Dirshu members to attend the inspiring Sabbath and Siyum.
The largest Torah organization in the world, Dirshu has been long known for sparing no expense when holding events for the honor and glory of Torah at the grandest conceivable level. This time, however, it appears that Dirshu has outdone even its usual standards, planning an event the likes of which have not yet been seen in the Jewish world.
The great annual Dirshu event is actually held in the United States, and once every five years in Europe. This year’s European version will be held in the Heythrop Park Resort Hotel, a historic estate more than 300 years old spread out over 440 acres. Dirshu has been working for months to iron out all the technical details to ensure that the luxurious compound will be able to host the glorious Shabbos and Siyum HaShas in the most complete manner from every standpoint.
Dirshu says that when producing an event for the honor of the Torah and those who study it, the only goal they have in mind is to aggrandize the Torah as much as possible and to make a Kiddush Hashem. “Our purpose,” they say, “is to show that the most important and admired people, and those who deserve the most honor, are those who study Torah.”
