Subject:  tisha b'av
Message:  My wife will not be able to fast this tisha b’av. She is nursing a baby and, while other women are able to fast while pregnant/nursing, she foresees that the fast will be impossible. With that in mind, how should we handle the day? Does she skip the fast altogether or does she simple limit her consumption of food? If the latter, could you please direct us with some detailed examples. We are new at this…

Thanks

   
Reply:  If she cannot fast, then she shouldn't fast. Don't party, just be healthy.
