   *SIYYUM – THE FAST OF THE FIRST BORN

The Torah relates that the first born of the Israelites were spared from the last plague which was visited upon the Egyptians. As an act of gratitude and as a means of reenacting a great event of ancient history, the custom has arisen to have all the Bechorim (first born) fast on Erev Pesach. As a substitute for this fast, Bechorim may participate in some sacred study in the synagogue on the morning before Pesach. Thus, the fast is obviated while the purpose is enhanced. There will be a service and study session Friday morning, March 30th beginning at 7:00 am. The Men’s Club will sponsor a light breakfast following services.

*** Counting the Omer – And Making Each Day Count.     Each year, near the conclusion of the second Pesach seder, we begin to count the omer. We count for 49 days, reciting the appropriate blessing every evening. Remember: the Jewish day begins at sunset; therefore, for example, if the 10th day of the Omer falls on April 21, we recite the blessing for that day on the preceding evening, April 20.  The 50th day is Shavuoth.  Blessing to recite as you Count the Omer.
