Home › Forums › Bais Medrash › V’Hu Rachum, Y’chaper Avon….Origin
I just today learned the origin of the minhag to say this, and to say it before Maariv.
More to follow.
Makkos were given between Mincha and Maariv
Psukim were read as the Makkos were given
V’Hu Rachum was the last Passuk said
Some Rishonim say we should have in mind, when saying this, that the Yissurim we had that day should be like Makkos for us and atone for our Aveirahs
cool,i didn’t know that
And what if our aveiros during the day were more along the lines of skila, sreyfo, hereg, henek or koreis?
Thank you Mod-80. I must say, this helped my kavanah when davening Ma’ariv last night.
