Recalls Tragedies of Judaism's six
statutory public fasts, Yom Kippur
and Tisha b'Av (the ninth of Av) are
considered major fasts, lasting from
sundown to sundown. The other
four are considered minor fast days,
which last from sunrise to sunset on
the same day.

Shiva Asar be-Tammuz ,

the 17th of Tammuz, is one of
those minor fast days, falling this
year on July 13. According to the
Mishnah, this was the day the
Romans breached the walls around
Jerusalem, which led to the destruc-
tion three weeks later of the Second
Temple in 70 C.E. Jeremiah men-
tions that the walls of Jerusalem
were breached (preceding destruc-
tion of the First Temple in 586
B.C.E.) on the ninth of Tammuz, but
this event is commemorated on the
17th of Tammuz.
The ancient rabbis mention other
events that they believed occurred
on this day, including Moses
breaking the tablets of the Ten
Commandments, cessation of the
daily sacrifices during the Roman
siege, the burning of the Torah and
the building of an idol in the Temple
before the Maccabean revolt.

she was sitting in the seat next to
me and listening to every prayer of
In Danny's essay, he talked about
how at first Israel looked like the
United States, but when they started
driving, "we saw A LOT of desert
and then it looked like the real
thing." He was impressed with his
visit to the army base.
Both winners received a cover
table book about Israel and a fam-
ily dinner at Jerusalem Pizza in
