Fast for Fifteen: Purim

This evening begins the Jewish holiday of Purim, which originates in the story of Esther. For those participating in the Fast for Fifteen, to fast and pray for fast food workers who are fighting for “$15 and a union,” today is a time when the Christian season of Lent and a Jewish fast for Purim coincide.

ICWJ Director Rabbi Renee Bauer has written a reflection for today on the Jewish fast for Purim, which is featured as the daily reflection for the Fast From Fast Food of Interfaith Worker Justice.
