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.
