Fasting by ill people


We have begun to discuss the fast day of the 17th of Tammuz, which is coming up on Sunday July 20th.

One who is unusually ill does not observe this fast, even if he is not deathly ill. However, normal feelings of non-dangerous weakness due to fasting are not considered 'illness' in this regard.

(Mishneh Berurah 550:4)

Have a good day,
