I'll save you a post though. It's when someone finishes learning something. Usually one makes a siyum when finishing a tractate (masechta) in gemara. Although there can be a siyum for other things as well.

When people make a siyum they make a party of some sort.

Surprised that this trip has not gotten any media coverage in Israel or the US (even Jewish media outlets).

There you go
