Was Siyum HaShas a Missed Opportunity
This incredible and carefully orchestrated event, sparkling with Kiddush Hashem after Kiddush Hashem, should have been broadcast live on the internet. Instead of inspiring the mere 93,000 participants, it could have inspired millions, yes, tens of millions. Had there only been a live feed.
Before the event, VINNews made several attempts to reach out to Agudath Israel to allow the event to be broadcast, but was unsuccessful. The lower quality feed that one individual young man had managed to set up, was not a suitable substitute, although there were an additional 55,000 views who were watching it.
This was, according to all counts, a lost opportunity.
