Do you know if the Yom Iyun is going to be available for viewing online?

I would love to attend, but I'm living in Israel, so it's not really feasible for me.
Online access would be the next-best thing, though.

i'm pretty sure they do; but you can probably email the person at the email link above to find out for certain.
