The climactic denouement of the Daf Yomi seven-year study cycle of the Talmud was staged in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem on Monday night, with tens of thousands of haredi men crowding into separate venues in the two cities to celebrate their having completed the study of the ancient work of Jewish law.

Dirshu, an international organization devoted to increasing Torah study around the world, held its celebration in the Yad Eliyahu stadium in Tel Aviv, in which 11,000 men packed the arena to the rafters.
