Mincha on Erev Yom Kippur

Mincha on Erev Yom Kippur
Day: Wednesday
Date: October 1, 2014
Parshat: Vezot Haberacha
Yalkut Yosef:

One should try to go to the mikvah on Erev Yom Kippur. One who is not able to go should pour water over himself instead. (See DSH from Sept. 3, 2014 for the correct measurements and procedure.) We pray Mincha before eating the seuda hamafseket. Toward the end of the Amida we say Viduy as well the Al Chet service just like during the Amida on Yom Kippur itself. The reason is so that in case Gd forbid before Yom Kippur something terrible happens to the person, he will have already repented and will not have lost the opportunity. Even if one knows for a fact that he didn't do one of the sins mentioned he still needs to say it.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
