When one completes a Masechet (tractate) of Gemara, it is a Mitzvah to rejoice and celebrate with a Seudat Mitzvah.<ref>Shabbat 118b, Rama Yoreh Deah 246:26</ref> It is considered a Seudat Mitzvah for others who didn't learn the Masechet, as well.<ref>Moed Kattan 9a, Shach, Yoreh Deah 246:27</ref>==Who May Make Procedure of a Siyum==# One reads the last part of the Masechet, recites the Hadran, the list of Rav Papa's ten sons, the "Vehaerev Na" prayer, and [[Kaddish]].<ref>Aruch HaShulchan, Yoreh Deah 246:44</ref>#The [[Maharshal]] suggested that "Shehasimcha Bimono" should be added to the [[Zimun]] at a Siyum, but his suggestion has not been accepted.<ref>Yam Shel Shlomo (Bava Kama 7:37), Aruch HaShulchan (Yoreh Deah 246:45)</ref>
==What Learning Entitles One To Make a Siyum==
# If one learned an entire Maasechet except for one paragraph, it’s sufficient for a Siyum. <Ref>Halichot Shlomo 8:2 </ref>
# If someone studies through one of the books of the holy Zohar, it is considered an act of genuine Torah study even if he does not understand any of the mystical meanings of the passages. Celebrating the completion of these books is sufficient to exempt a firstborn from fasting on the 14th of Nissan. <ref> Yalkut Yosef 470:19 </ref>
#[[Kaddish]] De'itchadeta is commonly recited at the conclusion of the Siyum.<ref>Yalkut Yosef Tefillah vol.1 56:33 and vol. 2 110:17</ref> Some recite Kaddish DeRabbanan.<ref>Aruch HaShulchan, Yoreh Deah 246:44</ref>
#[[Tachanun]] is not recited at the Tefillah following or preceding a Siyum.<ref>Sh"t Yabia Omer 4:13 writes that one doesn't say [[Tachanun]] in the [[davening]] right before a siyum just like the mishna in Taanit (31a) says that in they made a holiday on [[Tu BeAv]] because certain families finished for the season the mitzvah of chopping wood for the Bet HaMikdash.</ref>
# Likewise, someone within the thirty-day [[mourning]] period for another immediate relative ([[Shloshim]]) may attend such a celebration, as well.<ref> Yalkut Yosef 470:24 </ref>
# However, someone within the seven-day [[mourning]] period ([[Shiva]]) may not attend such a celebration. See below about Erev Pesach.<ref> Yalkut Yosef 470:24 </ref>
#One who usually fasts for his parent's [[Yahrzeit]] may attend a Siyum and break his fast.<ref>Aruch HaShulchan, Yoreh Deah 246:45</reF>
