What is Yom Hashas?
It is a one-day event to take place iy”h on Sunday 2 Adar 5781/14th February 2021. Throughout the day the entire Shas will be collectively learnt by a large group of people.
How is this possible?
By dividing the Shas into sections, with each Lomed learning approximately 10 Daf.
How can I learn all my Dafim in just one day?
By preparing your Dafim beforehand.
Will I learn by myself, or can I bring a chavrusa?
You are welcome to register with a chavrusa.
How many hours will there be to learn the Dafim?
There will be a morning and afternoon Seder, totalling around 6 hours. This is aside from a break for Mincha and a catered lunch. Coffee and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Where will the learning and siyum be held?
These details will be confirmed nearer to the time, in line with government guidance.
What has the feedback been from previous year’s Lomdim?
“Just wanted to say how amazing the whole day was from start to finish!”
“Thank you for allowing me to join this awe inspiring event.”
“The ruach was really electric; it will stay with me for a long time.”
“Thank you for an inspiring day. I don't think I have ever learnt as intensely as I did today.”

Is there a registration fee?
There is no registration fee. However, each Lomed commits to a goal of raising £500 for the Leeds Kollel. This typically consists of small donations from family/friends. The sponsor can donate via the website, or the donation can be brought to a drop off point.
When registering with a chavrusa, the goal will be for each one to raise £400.
That sounds like a lot of money to raise!
Although it sounds challenging, our experience shows that it is a realistic and reasonable target.
What are the funds being used for?
To help support the Leeds Kollel and its communal activities.
What is the Leeds Kollel?
It is a full day high calibre Kollel, comprised of Avreichim who all live in Leeds.
Aside from the daily two sedorim a day of learning, the Kollel families devote themselves to Harbotzas Hatorah, through teaching and outreach work in the community.
Thus, aside from Hachzokas Hatorah which in itself is an incredible cause, there is also the support of many successful outreach events geared to spreading the light of Torah in a very sizeable community.
How large is the Leeds Jewish Community?
It is the largest community in the UK outside London & Manchester, with estimates of close to 10,000 community members.
