Siyum for Fast of First Born and Hametz Burning

Siyum for Fast of First Born

Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder of Aish Kodesh will have a siyum (finishing a tractate of Talmud) on Monday March 29th, so that all the first-borns may be exempt from this Fast of the First Born.  There will be a minyan at 8:30 am, followed by the siyum (around 9:15 am) at Aish Kodesh, 1805 Balsam Ave.

Burning of Hametz

Bonai Shalom will be burning hametz at Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Rd.,  at 10:30 am.

Aish Kodesh will be burning hametz at 11:00 am at Aish Kodesh.

Hoping that everyone’s preparations for Passover are going well and that we will all know the true meaning of freedom this year!

Blessings,
Rabbi Marc
