Vishnitz Begins Reciting Tachnun at Mincha Gedolah

(Sunday, October 21st, 2012 07:00 PM)

The Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita (HaRav Yisroel Hager) has instructed talmidim and avreichim to begin reciting tachnun at mincha gedolah. The minhag in the past among Vishnitzer chassidim was not to recite tachnun at mincha with the exception of a period during the life of the Imrei Chaim and the start of the leadership of the Yeshuos Moshe.

    He’s becoming a non hassid?!??

  2. Gadolhadorah says:

    Did rav Hager offer any explaination for this change?

  3. rotzehbilumshmo says:

    The main reason for not saying nefilas apayim was because the Chasiddim generally davened Mincha late. Tachanun is notsaid at night.From that the “minhag” spread that even when Mincha was davened early, they did not vsay Tachanun because “we do not vsay tachanun at Mincha” But the Rebbe got it right. He said Avreichim and talmidim who daven Mincha gedola (mid-day) should say tachanun! This is the Rebbe thinking in Halacha and not “my zeide’s zeide the Hotzenplotzer Rebbe did or didn’t do something. Kol haKavod!!!

    #3, This is the reason why many don’t say tachanun at mincha, but really if you’re considering it “day” for the purpose of davening mincha then why turn around and say it’s “night” and thus not be able to say tachanun? Did it become night between Shmoneh Esrei and tachanun?

    Viznitz always davens minchah before shkiah anyway
