3 Tammuz

In 1272 BCE (Jewish year 2489), Joshua commanded the sun to “stand still at Gibeon” (Joshua 10:12). Joshua was involved in conquering the southern part of Canaan, and Shabbat was fast approaching. Not wanting to do battle on Shabbat, Joshua prayed for a miracle, and the sun stopped twice — once at midday and once before sunset, giving the Israelites extra time to complete the battle.
