So, that was the the Tenth of Tevet Fast*, that was. Glad it’s over. I’m just slightly upset to have belatedly discovered that, back in Glasgow, the fast is 15 minutes shorter. Unfair!
(*A minor fast – עשרה בטבת, Asarah BeTevet – running from dawn to nightfall, marking bad old Nebuchadnezzar’s siege of Jerusalem. More here.)
