There are many others that are required by Rabbinic law, but not torah law. In fact we just passed one, Tisha B'av, the ninth of Av, when many terrible things happened to the Jewish people, individually and as a nation. Two major ones being this was the day that the Temple was destroyed, both Solomons' and Herods. Also the day that the Jews were ordered out of Spain ( one day before Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain, he is believed by some to have been a Cyrpto Jew). So there is fasting and mourning because the temple was destroyed.

But the required fast day, a day to afflict your soul, and to turn from fleshly things and concentrate wholely on spirtual is yom kippur, the day of atonement. This day is coming up soon. Beginning on the 8th of October at sundown.

Long time --

Fasts.. The fact that it is a High Holy Day in regards to this DISCIPLINE would indicate -with refrence to the Heart- what significance it has to YHWH

"Those who have made a _________ by sacrifice"

PS
There were 8 mil involved in a class act law suit against the CPS or Americas' 'Bank' on Foster-Adoption of the citizens' children in this country. -- Reciently the last number changed to the doubble-diggits (30 to 40 mil) --
Because the need is so great - Gregg Pound of freeourkids.org [freeourkids.com] has asked the US to partake in a fast -Fri eve to Sun eve- -

Thanks for the responses!

On another forum in a fast discussion someone looked at the scripture and said "when" you fast to mean - if you happen to while others said it seemed a forgone conclusion that we would fast and when we did to follow certain guidelines.

Thanks again.

Nothing more than the rest of that scripture - "Mat 6:16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: ... Mat 6:18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, ..."
