Fast of the First Born / Siyyum Bekhorim

All first born should fast on the day before Pesah in commemoration of the deliverance from Egypt of the Israelite firstborn. Rabbi Adelson offers a siyyum (public completion of study) which is followed by a festive meal at which all present may eat, and once having eaten, a first born need not fast that day.

The siyyum and the se’udat mitzvah will be held this year on Friday morning in the Helfant Chapel and Palkovitz Lobby at 8:15 a.m., following the 7:30 a.m. morning minyan.

This special siyyum breakfast is sponsored by Stanley & Cherie Maharam in loving memory of beloved parents and grandparents Bess & Aaron Maharam.
