Siyum on Yoma by Ki Heim Chayeinu

Coming up this Thursday the daf yomi will be finishing Maseches Yoma. To celebrate this momentous siyum, the organization Ki Heim Chayeinu (a division of the National Agudah) put together a program that includes a number of speakers, entertainers, and me. Read on for a behind-the-scenes look at some of the material I prepared.

I was contacted by Chananya Kramer of Kol Rom to collaborate with him on a virtual tour of the Beis Hamikdash. We spent an entire day in the studio rendering out background images, revising the script, and recording green screen video. We had a limited amount of time and so we restricted our tour to just a handful of Temple areas, including the Avtinas Chamber (as seen in the image above), the Parvah Chamber, the Kodesh Hakodashim, and a couple more that you'll have to see for yourselves when the livestream airs on Thursday night at 8:15 pm Eastern. [See the next post for a direct link to the video].

Chananya and his team did an amazing job on the technical end putting together the virtual files and splicing in the video to make the final product look really convincing. It is our collective hope that this presentation will inspire Klal Yisrael to focus their prayers and actions on bringing us closer to the day when the virtual Beis Hamikdash will be replaced by the real thing.
