(December 16) Tonight we’re observing. . .  Asarah B’Tevet

Asarah B’Tevet (Jewish – begins @ sundown)
The 10th day of the Hebrew month of Tevet is a minor Jewish fast day commemorating the siege of Jerusalem led by the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, in 588 BCE. Three years later, the Babylonian broke through the city walls and, three weeks later, destroyed the Holy Temple. Those who observe the fast refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset.
