The music sounds okay here. And it's free!

How long did the inspiration last?? Have you done anything concrete to elevate your learning?
I haven't opened a Sefer in at least 5 years. Since the Siyum I have a Chavrusa twice a week and i'm learning Brochos at my own pace with the app.
So how long will it last? I dont know.
Did it elevate my learning? You tell me!

Yep.
I brought my son to the Siyum HaShas, 2 days later, he tells me he wants to make a siyum on Seder Moed, every night he brings me a mishnayos, and we learn together.

My elementary age son attended the siyum somewhat reluctantly. By the time it was over he decided he’s going to do meseches brachos with the daf Yomi schedule. He’s up to date, and well on his way to finishing his first mesechta....

For all you sound guys, they bought in engeniers for sound from IL the main production company was MC Productions (Micael Caplin) who is considered one of the best if not the best in the line in the jewish world, and AF productions did the logistics as they are more local.

I did attend both siyumim whilst the metlife event was nice and insporational the speeches were too long and too many considering the lengh of each one, as for the other aspects of the siyum, at metlife they seemed to make sure the high rollers and machers were happy and had what they wanted and the rest seemed slightly forgotten, and i think one can make the oppisite argument some are making about the english vs yiddish i was at metlife and there was at least half maybe a little less of the attendees that understand yiddish and they felt the event was mainly geared to one sect.

Now at Dirshu they did not provide the type of lavish food aguda gave to their high rollers but on every other aspect they well and truly delivered i'm not even going to  talk about the music because it was on a whole other level, the speeches were shorter (besides for one that went more than 10min over) and more in number but they were very good and to the point. only rabonim and R' Hoffshteter got kavod and no one else. There was food for everyone not just people who paid for expensive tickets, and last but not least i left inspired to make sure that when i finnish each daf to have a good understanding of it and not just listen to a shiur and go on my way without making sure i have the daf stored by me.

p.s. we really missed having R' Abish Brodt singing ;)

The agudah siyum at metlife probably had the appropriate amount of Yiddish relative to the number of Yiddish-only speakers.

Case in point, I was at Shwekey’s Concert for his Center Run campaign which took place this past summer on the tarmac of the Lakewood Airport. The sound company was I think ConcertsRUs. Gosh did you feel the sound in your ribs!!! It was just what great sound companies do!!

Personally I think both Agudah and Dirshu were beautiful in their own way. Yes, the music was definitely better at D, however I felt A was more inspiring. I think both ought to be applauded for inspiring so many to start/continue learning shas and that's ulitmitely the goal.

Dirshu was very nice.
Only thing that wasn't good from my vantage point in row 1, was the blue lights and the smoke. It gave the room a hazy look.
I wanted to see the stage and people clearer.
But nicely done.

Blue lights and smoke? At a Torah event?
