Service of the First Born

Calling All Firstborn!

Being a firstborn in Egypt for both the Jews (at the beginning of the story) and the Egyptians (at the end of the story) was precarious. Today, we get together with Rabbi Kalev to start your Passover off right: pray together and enjoy breakfast with the final chametz meal before the Seder.  Let’s do what we can to make sure we have a minyan - we are starting early at 7:00 AM and will get you wherever you have to go on time!

RSVPs requested. Please let us know if you are able to attend so we can plan for a minyan.
