Siyum Celebration

Please join us for the traditional siyum (celebration marking the conclusion of a block of Torah study) on the day before Passover. According to Jewish law, firstborn male children are obligated to fast on the 14th of Nisan as a way of acknowledging their gratitude for having been saved from the final plague (the killing of the firstborn of Egypt).


The joy of the siyum celebration trumps the requirement for the firstborn to fast. Rabbi Muroff will share a teaching and then recite the traditional prayer marking the completion of Torah study. And then all - in the comfort and safety of their homes - will be invited to join in the siyum celebration with good food (often the final chametz) before the holiday.

Wed April 8, 8:30am

We warmly invite you to come by Saturday mornings for our Shabbat services, join our daily morning or evening minyan, sing with us at havdala, or come participate in some of our fabulous programs and events.

Last year was a busy one. We celebrated Rabbi Muroff's 25 years with our congregation. We sang wordless melodies and long "amens" with Joey Weisenberg. We delved into Tales of the Talmud with Rabbi Ilyse. We read essays from the book The Fire Within Us. Our kids, through Gesher, learned about their Jewish heritage, and also celebrated growing up with faith, meeting children from different traditions.
