THE GREAT WONDER
The בית יוסף
in Shulchan Aruch (O. Ch. 580) lists
additional fast days.
the fast days is on the 9th day in טבת. “It is unknown what
צרה happened on that day”.
גדולה (It's a great wonder)
that the בית
יוסף doesn't know what happened that
day. In our Selichos (אזכרה מצוק) it is written that
עזרא הסופר died on the 9th of
the month". ע"כ
is not so puzzeling why the ב"י wasn't
aware of the פיוט claiming עזרא died on the 9th of טבת
This פיוט is said, only by אשכנזים. The ספרדים say
the "פיוט “שעה עליון and the "פיוט “יושב בשמים
In both of these פיוטים, it says that
עזרא died on
the 10th of
טבת. (not the 9th)
The בית יוסף,
being Sefardi, must have held
עזרא died on the 10th and
be a wonder why he didn’t know what
happened on the 9th of
תוספות חדשים on מגילת תענית writes that
Hanotzri ym”s was born on the 9th of
were scared of the Nochrim, to publicize
that we fast
on his birthday.
