Nearly 100,000 members of the local Jewish community on Wednesday marked the completion of studying one of Judaism's holiest books.
MetLife Stadium was packed with people who finished reading the Talmud, the book of Jewish law and tradition.
The studying takes about seven and a half years.
The program combined singing and dancing with prayer and reflection, and was dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust.
Officials in New Jersey say the event required security and logistics similar to what would be needed for the Super Bowl in 2014.
New Jersey State Police says troopers working at the event completed an eight hour course that familiarized them with the stadium and Jewish customs.
