Traffic slows and commuters face delays as religious event starts at Metlife Stadium 

With about 90,000 orthodox Jews attending a religious event this evening at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, traffic and mass transportation has slowed down significantly, according to the Star-Ledger.

Delays are on Route 3 West, between Berry's Creek Bridge in East Rutherford and Route 21 in Clifton, the newspaper reports. There are also traffic problems on Route 3 West in the area of the Garden State Parkway.

Bus service from the Port Authority Bus Terminal to New Jersey is subject to 30-minute delays, while inbound delays were 20 minutes.

Orthodox Jews, men and women, are expected to celebrate their completion of the Talmud after seven and a half years of "page-a-day" studying. The MetLife celebration will be broadcast live in 80 cities and 14 countries. The even starts at 7 p.m.
