Some Jewish fasts serve to remember and to remind, in this way, the memories evoked by the rites and liturgy of remembering, regardless of content, are not aimed atthe intellect, but at evocation and identification. They do not merely call upon facts from the recesses of the past; they evoke a series ofsituations, and draw in existentially those who partake in remembering and in fasting. Days of mourning are also days of fasting, which comprise a considerable part ofJewish history, as these days denote the cornerstones, turning points and definitive points of their history. The majority of fasting days are linked to the Temple in Jerusalem, which was destroyed nearly two thousand years ago. The Temple was the intellectual center of the Jewish people; this building symbolized the people's relationship with God and the land God had given them. The destruction of the Temple meant the loss of the intellectual center and, consequently, of independence for the Jewish people. This is followed chronologically by the diasporic or dispersion fasts, among them the fast of Esther, which comes before the genocide of that era; this is followed by memorial days in remembrance of the pogroms of the Middle Ages, and finally comes the recent past, which evokes horrors beyond human imagination. Pogroms have always been present in Jewish history, but the events of the 20th century overshadowed them all. It was then that others wanted not only to destroy the Temple, the land and the cities, and kill the leaders and mentors of the Jews, butto wipe the whole Jewish race off the face of the earth.
