Installation ? :D
Not as good as inauguration but better than dedication :P (I did consider not including it, that probably would've been the better choice)

Literally, a blessing. That translation should work for most contexts.

I believe you were answered in the Antarctica thread. Siyum is completion, when referred to as "a siyum" its generally referring to a celebration upon completion of something, often in regards to talmudic studies, such as completion of a tractate.

Siyum?
I could swear I saw you ask this and get an answer elsewhere on the forums. Where's TimT when you need him? It's the completion of a portion of Torah study, typically made on a tractate of mishna or Talmud.

Lol I was posting that before anyone responded, and then was interrupted. By the time I posted it, there were 2 responses.

And that’s why you need to become a mod. Can’t have people cutting you off like that. Delete their posts!
