Peter’s Yarzheit

Daniel Lancaster & Toby Janicki have put forth an exciting proposal linking the fast of Tevet with the yarzheit (anniversary of a person’s death) of the Apostle Peter!

As a synopsis, throughout the centuries many observant Jews have not only fasted on the 10th of Tevet, but on the 9th as well, without a clue as to why. Daniel & Toby believe it is due to it being the yarzheit of Peter, which has been quietly observed for nearly 2000 years within the Jewish community. Take a listen for yourself at Daniel’s audio teaching and decide for yourself. By next year many of us may be observing Peter’s yarzheit as part of our minhag.
