It’s shiva Asar b’Tammuz over Shabbat, but the fast is pushed back to Sunday – the beginning of the three weeks. We fast in memory of the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem.
It’s a minor day fast, although long and hot in many parts of the world. Time to think about what to do with kids on a fast day and what to feed the kids. It’s time for last minute haircuts and prep.
Have an easy and meaningful fast!
