Fast of the Firstborn – 8 April

It is the day of the plague spread upon the firstborn children of Egypt, but the lives of the Israeli were spared. This is a special fast for the Jews since firstborn males of a Jewish family fast on this day only. If the firstborn is under 13, his father fasts instead.


Passover is one of the biggest Holidays of the Jewish religion for its widespread celebration around the world. It is maybe the greatest holiday celebrated for the commemoration of the 10th day of Israeli Exodus from the lands of Egypt after the firstborn male Children of Egypt were plagued.
