Tsom Asara b'Tevet - Today, Tuesday.

Tenth of Tevet (עשרה בטבת‎, Asarah BeTevet), the tenth day of the Hebrew month of Tevet, is one of the minor fasts observed from before dawn to nightfall. 

The fasting commemorates the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylonia—an event that began on that date and ultimately culminated in the destruction of Solomon's Temple (the First Temple) and the conquest of the Kingdom of Judah.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel chose to observe the Tenth of Tevet as a 
"general kaddish day" (yom hakaddish ha'klalli
to allow the relatives of victims of the Holocaust, and whose yahrtzeits is unknown, to observe the traditional yahrtzeit practices for the deceased, including lighting a memorial candle, learning mishnayot and reciting the kaddish. (wiki)
