This year, we have the rare occurrence of Asarah B’Teves falling out on a Friday. Due to its rarity and the fact that Asarah B’Teves is the only fast that we do observe on a Friday, there are many halachic considerations to take into account. See below for a guide on the Halachos of Asarah B’Teves on Erev Shabbos, compiled and written by Rabbi Yaakov Robinson, executive director of the Midwest Agudas Yisroel Council of Synagogue Rabbanim, and reviewed by Rabbi Shmuel Fuerst, Dayan, Agudas Yisroel of Illinois. For a more detailed guide on all the Halachos of Asarah B’Teves click here for the Safah Berurah, on the halachos of Chanukah and Asarah B’Teves.
