Wednesday, April 8 ⋅ Erev Passover, First Seder, Ta’anit Bechorot

7am ⋅ Morning Minyan followed by Siyyum (completion of study for First Born child)

Every year, on the eve of Passover, there is an obligation on firstborn children to have a fast day, expressing their gratefulness in being spared during the 10th plague which struck down the Egyptian firstborns. We celebrate a siyyum, or the completion of a significant amount of Torah study, which is followed by a celebratory meal in lieu of the fast. The annual siyyum is supported by the Jack Goldman Siyyum Fund. Jack Goldman was deeply immersed in Torah study, and specifically in his study of a page of Talmud every day (daf yomi), an incredibly challenging endeavor.  We are so honored in our Anshe Emet community to celebrate the completion of study of the Talmudic Tractate Bava Kamma by Nathan Kasimer virtually following minyan on Wednesday morning. Yasher koach Nathan!
