Chapter 1, Mishna 5
How do we conduct ourselves on a fast day? Depends in part whether it’s a day of mourning or a day of desisting from pleasure. How do we allot our time on that day regarding prayer, Torah study and examining the deeds of the community? We may not bathe on a fast day – what exactly is included in this prohibition? What kind of bathing is allowed to a mourner, if any? May a mourner eat meat and drink wine? May he launder his clothes? Cut his hair?
