Throughout Jewish history, in times of trial and tribulation, the Jewish people would fast and beseech G-d His mercy.

Nowadays we do not fast as much - Because of the physical weakness caused by fasting, and because optimism is particularly important in times such as these.

A charitable donation equal in value to the three daily meals is recommended. As Torah is the source of strength for the Jewish People, charities promoting Torah study are recommended.
