Fast of Esther

March 16, 2022

A fast from dawn until dusk on Purim Even. The fast commemorates one of two events in the Book of Esther: either Esther and the Jewish community of Shushan having fasted for 3 days and 3 nights before she approached the king, or a fast which is presumed to have occurred on the 13th of Adar, when the Jews fought a battle against their enemies.
