Halocho #240 - Laws of Fast of 10 B'Tevet

On Tuesday is the fast of 10 B'Tevet.
No eating and drinking is allowed from dawn to nightfall.
One may eat before dawn if one had the intention of doing so before one went to bed the night before.
If one always drinks when one gets up, then one can drink before dawn even of one didn't think about it when going to bed.
Pregnant and nursing mothers as well as people who aren't feeling well do not need to fast if fasting will cause them discomfort.
Those who may eat, as well as children, should not indulge in food. If possible they should limit themselves to bread and water.
