Morning minyan and siyyum

Friday, April 19, 2019 14 Nisan 5779

6:45 AM - 8:30 AM

The Fast of The Firstborn (Ta’anit Bekhorim) reminds us that when the first-born of Egypt were slain during the tenth plague, the Israelite first-born were spared.  In appreciation, all first-born Jews should fast on Erev Pesah.

 

However, this responsibility is nullified when the individual joins a festive meal marking the completion (siyyum) of the study of a Jewish text.  Each year we arrange for a siyyum on Erev Pesah so that first-born need not fast that day.

 

Morning minyan will begin at 6:45 a.m. and will be followed by our siyyum and (a hametzdik) breakfast.
