VIDEO: Agudah Chairman Shlomo Werdyger announces Barclays as additional venue for The Siyum

Tonight, at The Agudah Convention a historic announcement was made. In response to the unprecedented demand for seats, The Agudah has secured Barclays Center as a second home for The Siyum.

The Siyum is a Klal Yisroel event celebrating Torah and inspiring exponential growth in future learning and kvias itim. “We want to make sure that anyone and everyone who wants to attend The Siyum and be inspired is able to do so,” Mr. Shloime Werdiger, Chairman of The Board of Directors of Agudas Yisrael explained. “We are delighted that so many people, bnei Torah, talmidei chachamim, yeshivish, chassidish, modern orthodox, ba’alei teshuvah, not yet frum, basically everyone want to come to The Siyum. Now, with the additional seats at Barclays, there is a seat for everyone at this great ma’amad of Kavod haTorah.”

All seats in Barclays will be $36 and $54. This is in addition to the more than 50% of seats at MetLife Stadium that were priced at $54 and below which are now sold out. The opening of Barclays brings the number of seats available at this level to more than the total number of seats in any other venue in the region.

In just over a month, on January 1, 2020, tens of thousands will join together at Barclays Center, along with nearly half a million celebrants around the world. There will be a live program at Barclays Center featuring tefilos, Video presentations, live music, dancing and more. Barclays will also be connected in real-time to The Siyum at MetLife Stadium.

The scope of the upcoming Siyum HaShas is already remarkable with more than 30,000 children learning through Masmidei HaSiyum, 12,000 lomdim of Chavrei HaSiyum and the tens of thousands of additional lomdei Daf Yomi since the last siyum. This massive growth of Torah has created an unprecedented demand to attend the Siyum, and has led to this historic expansion of The Siyum to Barclays Center.

Ticket sales for Barclay Center will be available December 5.
