10th of Tevet (Asarah Be'tevet) 2014

Category :: Holiday
The 10th of Tevet never actually occurs in 2014, the Hebrew year 5775, so while it's labelled as 2014, it's obviously actually in 2015.

According to Chabad.org: Tevet 10 is observed as a day of fasting, mourning and repentance, in remembrance of the siege of Jerusalem. We refrain from food and drink from daybreak to nightfall, and add the Selichot and other special supplements to our prayers. (More recently, Tevet 10 was chosen to also serve as a "general kaddish day" for the victims of the Holocaust, many of whose day of martyrdom is unknown.)
