The fast day of Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas

Burning Of The Talmud-Erev Shabbos Parshas Chukas The Mogen Avraham #580  quotes The Tanya Rabosi   “ On Friday Parshas Chukas, Yechidim (individuals) fast. That day 20 [24] wagons of seforim were  burnt. The fast day was established on Friday Chukas rather than the 9th of Tamuz,
 because they made a Sheilos Chalom if the Gezeira was from Shomayim.

The answer came back,  the Targum of Zos Chukas Hatorah “ DO  GEZEIRAS ORYSA” This is a Gezeira from Shomayim and it is on Fridays of  Parshas Chukas. The year 1244, was the first time they burned the Talmud in the main square of Paris. R. Yechiel of Paris had a talmid Nicholas Dunin, who became a Meshumad , he accused the Talmud of being against the Notzrim and Oso Haish. R. Yechiel of Paris and R. Moshe miKutzi (Smag) tried to defend the Talmud, but to no success. Their argument was that when the Gemoro discusses the Oso Haish it Is not necessarily the Christian one. There were at least three different Meshichei Sheker in the Gemoro.
After the burning of the Talmud, R. Yechiel of Paris moved to Akko . Hence the first of the Ba’alei Tosfos in Eretz Yisroel. R.Hillel Virona* writes the Talmud was burnt on the same square they burned the Moreh Nevuchim. The Rambam's opponents finally realized they  wronged  the Rambam.
