EAST RUTHERFORD - An estimated 100,000 people came out tonight to celebrate the reading of the last page of the Talmud at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, despite massive traffic delays.

The celebration is marking the culmination of a more than seven year reading of the Talmud, which is considered an important text in Judaism. Those participating read one page of the Talmud each day, culminating at the event tonight.

While tens of thousands of people were expected for the event, the celebration was delayed an hour due to massive traffic delays due to the amount of people flocking to the stadium.
