The Fast of Esther: What, Why and How
I absolutely Love Love Love and I do mean Love fasting sooooo, yes I will be fasting. It’s a minor fast which is sun up to sun set (dry fasting). I enjoy focusing solely on HaShem Praise His Glorious Name. Not worrying about little things like food or drink is so freeing. Of course, because I know it’ll end in a couple of hours.
I am sure if G-d forbid the fast was some of the harder fast for a longer period of time, I might be concerned. The longest fast I have ever completed successfully, was a wet fast for 3 weeks, and a veggie and wet fast for 6 months. That was fun, but very trying.
I don’t recommend those fast for beginners.
For the record I had set goals for fast and failed many times before I ever was successful.
I am competitive with myself and disciplines. I don’t recommend my type of crazy for anyone. I was going through a lot at the time was over coming a lot of battles. So Extreme fasting was needed for my personal case. I have spoken about this a little in season 1 of the Bible Study, so I wont get into details again.
And of course always know your body first and seek medical advice before any such fasting of times. I can some times obviously go a little of board with my self.. I am sometimes too competitive. It can be a good thing for me, but also a not so good thing.
This week’s Jewish terminology word is: krechz
So for today’s word which my personally owned The JPS Dictionary of Jewish Words by Joyce Eisenberg and Ellen Scolnic 2001 copyright 1st edition defines this weeks Jewish Terminology Word krechz as a verb a Yiddish word pronounced (KREKHTZ) To sigh, moan and grunt about a little ache or pain or minor discomfort. The sound are often accompanied by “oy.” Old fashion usage.
I am not going to lye, this word was a little difficult for me to pronounce so I had to look up how to even properly say the word krechz. So of course I did a simple brave browser search and found the below link of how to properly pronounce this weeks Jewish Terminology Word of the Week. How to pronounce.com is not a Jewish site that I know of… so of course always take it with a grain of salt from non-Jewish source.
This weeks Jewish Terminology word of the week has me wondering what are other commonly used words to express discomfort other languages? The list seems like it would be a funny one to look up. So i began to look up a list of words to express discomfort tin others languages and as many might imagine it got dark pretty quick. I have been feeling very down lately with all the news so I decided to try and keep this light and fun and interesting.
So, instead I want to look up the word discomfort in other languages for example:
Discomfort in Portuguese is desconforto, French is inconfort , Japanese is 不快, Danish is ubehag, and Estonian is ebamugavustunne. That is pretty interesting… now I am wondering how each of those beautiful culture express mild discomfort? I love learning about other cultures. I need to travel more. G-d willing soon!
Wouldn’t it be awesome to be something like Joseph and speak over 40 languages? Image all the wonder music we could understand and sing! One day that’ll be nice! G-d willing!
This lead me into wondering what other languages sounds like saying a simular word. So of course I looked around and #thankyouHaShem
I found some cute videos online that compare words in different languages:
Spanish vs. Italian vs. French vs. Portuguese | Romance Languages Comparison
I also found an interesting video titled 10 Of The World’s OLDEST Languages STILL Spoken Today… interesting!

There are some really awesome videos and shorts online I hope others check them out.
The Torah verses I think go along great with this weeks Jewish Terminology Word krechz are:
Genesis Bereshit chapter 1
Everyone on earth had the same language and the same words.
And as they migrated from the east, they came upon a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there.
They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them hard.”—Brick served them as stone, and bitumen served them as mortar.—
And they said, “Come, let us build us a city, and a tower with its top in the sky, to make a name for ourselves; else we shall be scattered all over the world.”
יהוה came down to look at the city and tower that humanity had built,
and יהוה said, “If, as one people with one language for all, this is how they have begun to act, then nothing that they may propose to do will be out of their reach.
Let us, then, go down and confound their speech there, so that they shall not understand one another’s speech.”
Thus יהוה scattered them from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.
That is why it was called Babel, because there יהוה confounded the speech of the whole earth; and from there יהוה scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
and in Words of Wisdom it states:
The beginning of Wisdom 10
226b. This is further supported by the scriptural verses, “I will withdraw the impure spirit from the earth” and, “I shall remove the heart of stone from your flesh”. In addition, concerning the world to come scripture states, “And I shall give you a heart of flesh and I shall instill a new spirit in your midst and cause you to walk in my statutes”, and, “Hashem shall be King upon the entire earth, on that day, Hashem shall be one and His name one.” Even in this world the Sitra Achara may be abrogated on a specific spiritual level by the complete rectification of that level. It then only exists on a lesser level. But concerning the world to come it is stated, “Death shall be swallowed forever”, and the world will be perfected in G-d’s Kingdom. This will constitute complete rectification in which “G-d will be one and His name one”. May it be G-d’s will that we merit this speedily in our days through Kindness and Mercy – Amen.
