MT @Moishebatchy for being the first person in the history of the world to make a siyum on every continent!

Super cool accomplishment!
Not sure what it is but sounds impressive.
Congrats @Moishebatchy
I just found a new supply of forks!

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
