Needed: More Inclusion
Tue, 08/21/2012

In Jonathan Mark’s column on the Siyum HaShas, “Siyum In The Stadium” (Aug. 10), he mentioned that non-haredi rabbis were not permitted on the dais. I find this very disappointing since the very purpose of the siyum was to unite Jews of various backgrounds.

Since a high percentage of attendees at this siyum were not haredim I would suggest that an organization set up a future Daf Yomi that would be inclusive of all Jews who are interested in uniting for the purpose of Torah study regardless of their background.
