New Resources on Fasting

Man praying at Western Wall

Fasting is a spiritual practice Jews and Christians share in common, an act of sacrifice that brings us closer to God.

We’ve created a new resource page to help you learn about the Jewish theology of fasting, including a teaching video from Rabbi Eckstein, articles on the purpose and power of fasting, and a five-part downloadable study on what it means to conduct a true fast. Check out these informative and inspiring resources now.

And test your knowledge about fasting with our new fasting quiz. We pray these resources enrich your understanding and your experience of this important spiritual practice.
