Mincha on Erev Yom Kippur


Placing Tzedaka onto plates:[1] Prior to Mincha one is to place coins of charity onto plates which are set up in Shul.[2]

When is it prayed? Mincha is prayed in the early the afternoon with extreme concentration, arousing Teshuvah from the depths of the heart.

The confession prayer:[3] One recites the confession prayer at the conclusion of Shemoneh Esrei of Mincha. [If one forgot to say it during Shemoneh Esrei he may say it after Shemoneh Esrei.[4]]

Hodu and Patach Eliyahu: When Erev Yom Kippur falls on Erev Shabbos one recites Hodu and Patach Eliyahu prior to Mincha.
