Passover Events

Shabbat HaGadol
Saturday, April 9, 9:15 am

Minyan and Siyyum Ha-B'chorim for Fast of the First Born
Friday, April 15, 7:00 am

A "siyyum" is a celebration of the completion of the study of a rabbinic text. This one allows first-borns ("b'chorim") to eat on the day before Passover.
(Otherwise, it is traditional for them to fast.) Rabbi Perkins will be completing his study of the talmudic tractate called "Hagigah,"
which includes mystical speculations. (He's saved a short snippet of text to study with us on Thursday morning.)
This year, because Passover begins on Friday night, the siyyum will be held on Friday morning.
All are welcome, even second-, third-, or fourth-borns!
Please RSVP if you plan on attending in-person to Melissa by April 13th. Click here to join us on Zoom.
Bi'ur Hametz (the Burning of Hametz)
Friday, April 15, 8:45 am
Watch as Jeff Liberman uses his blowtorch to burn hametz. (This will take place right after the siyyum.)
