Reading Zohar in Elul

Some have a custom to read the Tikkunei Zohar during Elul as a Segula.[1] They begin the reading on Rosh Chodesh Elul and complete it on Yom Kippur.[2] This custom was practiced also in Lubavitch[3] and was hence accepted amongst Chabad Chassidim. Nevertheless it is not obligatory for one to do so.[4]

[1] Kaf Hachaim 581/7; Kisei Melech Hakdama 1; Or Tzaddikim; Kitzei Hamateh 603/7 writes this is the custom of communities in Poland. This custom is mentioned in Likkutei Deburim Vol 1 page 151-158 as a custom that existed in Lubavitch.
