JavaScript Semi-colon?

I have barley started learning JavaScript and while in the first section of the JS Basics course it talks about Syntax errors so I went on and wrote a statement without the semi-colon to see if it returns a Syntax error rather than throwing out an error the program executed right without errors by the JavaScript interpreter. So my question is how did the program run without causing an error?
