About Fast of Esther
The Fast of Esther or Ta'anit Ester is a Jewish fast from dawn until dusk on Purim eve. It commemorates the three day fast observed by the Jewish people in the story of Purim. The Esther Fast in the bible was a three-day fast without food or water. This fast was accepted by the Jews for all future generations, as it is stated in the Book of Esther. They had established for themselves and their descendants the matters of the fasts and their cry. (Esther 9:31) The Fast is observed on the 13th day of the Hebrew month of Adar. If the Fast of Esther falls on Shabbat (Saturday), the fast is instead observed on the preceding Thursday. The Fast of Esther is observed in commemoration of the Fast observed by Mordechai and Esther and all Israel.
