Shacharit & Siyyum

Friday, April 19, 2019 14 Nisan 5779

8:00 AM - 9:30 AM739 W 186th Street, Apt 5E

Our Sages mark the horror of, and our deliverance from, the Plague of the Slaying of the First-Born, by prescribing a Fast of the First-Born (Ta’anit Bechorot) on the day before the first night of Pesach, from dawn until the Seder. This fast applies to adult Jews of all genders who are first-born (or only) children of any of their parents.

But we traditionally replace the fast with a se’udat mitzvah (ritual meal) in response to the siyyum(completion) of a substantial portion of Jewish text learning. To be exempt from the fast, join Rabbi Austrian and the community for morning prayers, a brief teaching led by Rabbi Austrian on Seder Mo'ed of the Mishnah, and one last bagel & shmear.

You can bring your sealed bag of last chametz from your search of the night before, and we’ll make a group trip to the fire barrel on Bennett Ave. to burn it up!

Please register so that we know we will have a minyan and enough bagels to go around!

Sorry, Registration has ended.
