Fast of Gedalia / צוֹם גְּדַלְיָּה

No eating_drinking

Dear Friends,

We hope you had a wonderful and meaningful Rosh Hashana! May the sound of the shofar usher in a sweet, successful healthy new year to all of you.

Just a reminder, tomorrow September 8, is the Fast of Gedalia. This fast is important because it commemorates the assassination of the Jewish governor of Judah, whose murder ended Jewish autonomy following the destruction of the First Temple.

The fast beings at dawn and ends at dusk. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer them!

Have a meaningful and easy fast.

Sincerely yours,

The Beth-El Jewish Center of Flatbush Family
