Why is it that nusach sfard/chassidishe shuls do no say Avinu Malkeinu on a taanis, such as today? What is it in that their leaders found so non-compelling and meaningful as to not recite it on these days? Some places do not even say during Aseres Y’mai Teshuvah. Any insights?
I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I davened in a shul that davens Nusach Sefard today and we said AM…
we did too
and i always have
where are you basing your generalaztion from?
Well, I have been in several shuls here in Flatbush over the years where they didn’t, including this morning. And I didn’t say all shuls, I just said nusach sfard/chassidishe, because the ashkenaz always say Avinu Malkeinu.
did they say tachnun?
Because this prayer was composed exclusively for “Asseres Yemei Teshuva”. …. Phrases like “Boreich Oleinu Shono Tovo” and the “5 Kosveinu’s” are clear obvious giveaways, that this prayer is only pertanent to Asseres Yemei Teshuva.
Needless, to say, Jekkes also don’t recite Ovinu Malkeinu on a Ta’anis except of-course on Tzom Gedaliah & Y’K which are during the Asseres Yemei Teshuva.
Yes, they said tachanun.
Avinu Malkeinu has alternative language for taanis tzibbur that isnot during asseres yemai teshuva.
why don’t you ask them?
In 2 shuls which daven according to Vizhnitz minhogim that I’ve been to (Hagers in Golders Green, London & Shteible Prestwich, Manchester) they do NOT say Avinu Malkeinu on Taaniyos.
