Taanis Esther.
 
 
A short thought about the fact that the fast was pushed up (to 11 ADAR) as we can't fast on Shabbos.

(some thoughts).
NOTE: There is an error in this class. I say that there is no source for the idea that Ta'anis Esther is called Esther's fast because she alone fasted. Well it's been brought to my attention that the Rebbe says exactly that in Lkutei Sichos vol. 6 page 372. Sorry. Otherwise enjoy the class. Rabbi Y. Paltiel.
 
A thought.
Every Ratzui (Yom Kippur) needs a Shov (eating Erev Yom Kippur; and every Shuv (Purim) needs a Ratzo (fasting Ta'anis Esther).
