Siyyum Bechorim, Fast of the First Born
Monday, April 10, at 7:00 a.m.
Join us for minyan and study
Because the first-born of the Israelites were saved from the tenth plague, tradition requires that all first-born Jewish males fast from Erev Pesach until the Seder. The fast is called Taanit Bechorim. However, the law states that when any Jew hears the completion of a tractate of Rabbinic Literature, it is cause to celebrate and cancels the fast.
Join us on Monday, April 10 at 7:00 a.m. at Congregation B’nai Israel for a Siyyum Bechorim, and those who participate are exempt from fasting.
All are welcome; it is not limited to the first-born.
