It is traditional for the first-born (b'chorim) in a family to fast on the day before Passover to commemorate being spared the fate of the first-born Egyptians. However, if the first-born participates in a "siyyum", a period of learning at a morning service, he or she can break the fast at the celebration that traditionally concludes a siyyum. This is because the obligation to eat at a siyyum supersedes the obligation to fast. At Bet Am Shalom we welcome you - from wherever you fall in the birth order – to participate in this excellent spiritual and intellectual preparation for the seder night. The rabbi promises to give you a morsel of learning to share at your own seder. Our service and study goes from 7:00-7:50AM.
