Siyyum Bekhorot Study & Burning Hametz
Apr 19 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

All are invited for a short pre-Pessah study session with Rabbi Goldstein beginning at 9:00am on Friday, April 19.

Fast of the Firstborn (Hebrew: תענית בכורות, Ta’anit B’khorot or תענית בכורים, Ta’anit B’khorim); is a unique fast day in Judaism which usually falls on the day before Passover. Usually, the fast is broken at a siyum celebration (typically made at the conclusion of the morning services), which, according to prevailing custom, creates an atmosphere of rejoicing that overrides the requirement to continue the fast. Unlike most Jewish fast days, only firstborns are required to fast on the Fast of the Firstborn.

Ta’anit Bechorot begins at dawn on Fri, 19 April 2019.

At 11:00am congregants are invited to join us at the fire pit behind CBI to burn the last bits of chametz they may have.

at Congregation Beth Israel
229 Murdock Ave.  Asheville, NC 28804
Door prize:  4 tickets to an Asheville Symphony performance.
AmiciMusic, Asheville’s own award-winning chamber music ensemble, returns to Congregation Beth Israel for another exciting “JEWISH JAZZ” concert with all new music.  Steve Loew, clarinet, and Daniel Weiser, piano will perform this incredible program of clarinet and piano music that highlight some important Klezmer influences on the jazz instrumentalists and composers of this period, many of whom were Jewish.  Dr. Weiser will tell the fascinating story of the great fusion of musical styles from ragtime to blues to Klezmer that helped produce the new Jazz style in New York City in the first decades of the 20th century as the wave of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe met up with the Great Migration of African-Americans from the South. This program features some more wonderful Klezmer-inspired pieces by Lev Kogan and Michele Magnani, as well as works by Benny GoodmanGeorge GershwinLeonard Bernstein, and more. Loew and Weiser have performed in over 20 countries around the world and put on a show that is second to none.
You will not want to miss this!
Tickets $25 per person. Refreshments served. Call Congregation Beth Israel 828-252-8660 for reservations.
