Minyan for the Firstborn
Logging on is easier than fasting...
Wednesday, April 8, from 8 - 9:30 AM via Zoom or Facebook Live. Email 
Mitch Cohen for your personalized link to help us make a minyan or you can also observe the service on zoom here: or on Facebook Live.
There is a tradition to do a Siyyum (a special teaching upon the completion of a work of study) on the day before the first Seder begins, especially for the firstborn, who can participate in the siyyum instead of fasting! Following minyan with Mitch Cohen, Rabbi Smolkin will be doing a teaching on Sichot HaRan, which illuminates the teachings of Reb Nachman. In addition to revealing the sage advice of this great mystic and great-grandson of the Baal Shem Tov, this work invites us into a deeply personal and modern exploration of the Divine. All are welcome. Bring a piece of chametz (leavened bread) to eat at the end.

It may ask you to sign up, but click the "not now" in small letters and it will disappear. If you miss the event it will be posted on the same page for later viewing.

Zoom is a great tool for conducting video and audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile devices, desktops, and telephones and we will be using this platform as well.
