Fasting and Pregnancy


Sunday July 20 is the fast day of Shivah asar b'Tammuz, the 17th of Tammuz.

A woman who is pregnant or nursing should not fast on this fast if she feels the slightest weakness. (Of course, that does not mean she should over-indulde in food, either.)

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 550:1; Mishneh Berurah 550:5)

Have a good day,
