The Siyum - the completion and dedication - took place on Sunday, and it was a rousing, lively, and beautiful event marking this extraordinary occasion.

It had been many, many years since the last time such an event took place at Sydenham Shul and the community came out in force. There was a parade with live music and dancing down Joseph Street to the Shul, accompanied by a police escort.

Rabbi Yossy Goldman, senior rabbi of Sydenham, brought the Torah, which is of the highest standard, from Israel some weeks ago. There was also a full day of educational and entertaining programming for children.
