What are you supposed to do if you inadvertently broke your fast on Yom Kippur? Do you:

  1. keep going;
  2. extend it (if so, how long);
  3. cancel it (if so, do you make it up a different day)?

Does it make a difference if the food or drink was actually swallowed before realizing the mistake?


1 Answer 1


Continue the fast. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

    The old version of your answer applied very nicely to the old version of the question. Now that we have a real question, we need a real answer with sources, so (for now) +1 removed. [ cc @DoubleAA ]

  • @Shokhet I don't know why a lack of sources was acceptable before, frankly.
