Under heavy security, dozens of Jews made a pilgrimage Monday night to Yeshua Ben Nun's grave in the village of Haras near Ariel to mark the fast of 10 Tevet. The fast marks the beginning of the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem, which eventually led to the destruction of the First Temple. The Chief Rabbinate designated 10 Tevet as a day of mourning for Holocaust victims whose date of death is unknown, Army Radio reported.
