First Born

"B'nee Bichoree Yisroel" - The Jewish People are my first born.

The Torah

You can only have one first born child. You may love all your children deeply and with passion, but there is something unique about the first born.

Raymond E. Feist

Tomorrow is Taanis Bechorim. Strange. Normally, on a regular fast day, when I break my fast I have to continue fasting. But on Erev Pesach by virtue of the siyum the bechorim may eat not only as part of the siyum but ALL DAY. I would say - have a seuda after the siyum but fast the rest of the day. Why does the Shulchan Aruch say differently??

See the brilliant answer of the Shu"t Eretz Tzvi in Simman 79 and the comments of Rav Frank in Mikraei Kodesh Vol. 2 Page 83.

Love and blessings!!
