Despite the chance of rain in the forecast for Wednesday evening, the Twelfth Siyum HaShas which is scheduled to take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, WILL be taking place.

A meeting was held between the organizers, and the decision was made for the event to proceed as planned. The event is scheduled to start on time.

In case of any rain during the Siyum, tens of thousands of ponchos are prepared for attendees.

All are asked to now daven that it not rain tomorrow or during the event.

Philo knows what to do:

Masechet Ta'anit specifies how fast days should be decreed to entreat heaven for rain. Therefore, in order to stop rain, Jews should do the opposite. Quick, everyone! Stuff yourselves with massive amounts of food today!
