When do males start fasting from age 18 years and older and females from age 15 years and older ?
?תענית כ' סיון
Rabeinu Tam was Gozer Ta’anis on 20th of Sivan. for one of the first blood libels against the Yidden in Blois France. (12th century )
During the Gezeiras Tach v’Tat (Chmielnitzki ym”s-17th century) ,the Va’ad Arba Artzos were Gozer Ta’anis again, on the 20th of Sivan.
The Sha’arei Teshuva (O. Ch 580 ) writes, they found the Pinkas (Kehilla Records) and in it was
written ,“They were Gozer Ta’anis, only for males older than 18 yrs. and females older
than 15 yrs.”
This is in accordance with the Magen Avraham (576:10) who writes, “When we are Gozer Ta’anis Al
Kol Tzoroh Shelo Tavo, The minimum ages for fasting are 15 & 18 years."
