Second Annual Siyum Tanach

The second yahrzeit of Rav Anemer zt"l will be marked with our second annual siyum Tanach at a seudah shlishit on April 28, Shabbos Tazria-Metzorah. The Young Israel Shomrai Emunah community intends to complete the study of Tanach. This yearly project is an enduring way for our community to heed the Rav's treasured message of the value of Torah study.

The Adult Education Committee will coordinate the effort, which will culminate with a Siyum Tanach, around the time of the Rav's yahrzeit (Rosh Chodesh Iyar). The Committee has divided the Tanach into 133 sections, and an online sign-up form can be accessed at the synagogue's website, or you may call Bob Levi at 301-593-2399 to register for a particular section. Individuals, couples, families, or chavrusas can signup for one or more of the Tanach sections to study. You are encouraged to learn a section of Tanach that you have yet to learn, or study a favorite section with the assistance of a new commentary.
