Doing Keriah by Kosel on day of Hachnasas Sefer Torah?
I am attending a Hachansas Sefer Torah by the Kosel. Should I perform Keriah as I usually do whenever I visit the Kosel?
From the letter of the law, Keriah is obligated to be performed even on days that Tachanun is omitted. Nevertheless, the custom is to be lenient and not do Keriah on these days. Now, the custom is not to recite Tachanun on a day that Hachanasas Sefer Torah takes place, and hence Keriah is not to be done when attending one by the Kosel.
