Minha on Erev Yom Kippur

Minha on Erev Yom Kippur
Day: Friday
Date: October 7, 2016
Parshat: Vayelech
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 604

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 certain that he didn't do one of the sins mentioned he still needs to say it. 

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