The Fast of 10 Tevet

December 25, 2020

The Tenth of Tevet, Asarah b’Tevet, which falls this year on December 25, 2020, is a minor fast day.  It commemorates the date when, according to the Tanach (II Kings 25:1-4), the Babylonians laid siege to Jerusalem. The siege continued for over two years, until the city walls were breached, on a day commemorated by the fast of the 17th of Tammuz (Shiv’ah Asar b’Tammuz) and then the Temple was destroyed, according to tradition on the Ninth of Av (Tish’ah b’Av).
