On Sunday, Jews will be fasting on the 10th of Tevet in memory and commemoration of the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar (588 BCE), which ultimately resulted in the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem.

The siege lasted one and half years, after which Nebuchadnezzar broke through the walls of Jerusalem on the 17th of Tammuz, and destroyed the Temple on the 9th of Av three weeks later.

The fast on the 10th of Tevet begins at dawn and ends at sunset.

The Chief Rabbinate also declared the 10th of Tevet as a general Kaddish day for victims of the Shoah (Holocaust).
