Ta'anit Esther


Information on today's "Ta'anit Esther - Fast of Esther" from the Orthodox Union in Jerusalem:

The fast in Jerusalem begins at 5am and ends at 6.01pm. 
Because Ta'anit Esther is preponed this year, no one follows it immediately with Megillah reading, and the fast is over at "stars out", like any other fast day.

This year, we say AVINU MALKEINU and TACHANUN at Mincha, because the fast is NOT followed immediately by Purim !
