  1. One may eat meat at a meal held for a siyum and this includes the friends and family invited to the meal.[1]
  2. A siyum can be made on a masechta of gemara, seder of mishna, or book of Tanach studied with the rishonim.[2]
  3. If a woman learns a Masechet well and makes a siyum, men may eat at the Seudat Mitzvah that follows.[3]
  4. Some say that from the 7th of Av they shouldn't serve meat at a siyum.[4]
  5. If a person missed hearing the siyum itself a rav should be consulted.[5]
    1. Chazon Ovadyah (Arba Taaniyot pg 196-8). Although the Rama Orach Chaim 551:10 writes that one should minimize the amount of guests invited to this meal, Rav Moshe Feinstein and Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (cited in Nitei Gavriel 18:7), rule that if the one who completes the masechet eats in a communal dining room (such as a camp or hotel), all those who eat with him may participate. Rav Moshe Feinstein quoted in Moadei Yeshurun page 132 says that preferably one shouldn't hold a siyum of a masechet after the sixth of av. Aruch Hashulchan 551:28 says that since nowadays we do not properly celebrate the torah, preferably no siyums should be held during the nine days.

    4. Rav Moshe Feinstein (cited by Rav Eider in Halachos Of The Three Weeks p. 7) holds that after the 7th of Av they should not serve meat even at a siyum.
    5. Rav Eider in Halachos Of The Three Weeks p. 8 writes that it seems to him to be permitted to eat from the meal even if he missed hearing the siyum but he concludes that a rav should be consulted.
