Jewish Law

Fasting while Pregnant

16.10.17

Question

Dear Rabbi , thank G-d I am currently 11 weeks pregnant and for years I have observed all the Fasts throughout the year. My question is whether a pregnant woman is exempt from the Fasts of the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B’Av?
 

Answer

Hello,
You do not need to fast on the 17th of Tammuz. As we approach Tisha B’Av, please ask again.

All the best,

Ask the Rabbi
