Tachanun after Sukkos


Tachanun is omitted until the beginning of Cheshvon. Tzidkascha is not recited on the Shabbos in between.

[1] Siddur Admur; Custom brought in Magen Avraham 669/1; Shaareiy Teshuvah 131/15; Seder Hayom [in end of section regarding Sukkos]; Kneses Hagedola; Peri Chadash 131/6 [entire month of Tishrei]; Chesed Leavraham Mayan 2/45


The Seder Hayom [from the year 1600] brings that Tachanun is omitted until the end of Tishrei because it is a month filled with Holidays and joyous events. We have 4 different holidays and were given a time of forgiveness in this month. He therefore writes it is improper to show any sadness after having experienced all these lofty matters of the month, and rather one is to rejoice in it. [See Admur 429/8-9 regarding the month of Nissan]

Ruling of Admur in Shulchan Aruch: In 624/13 Admur rules that no Tachanun is recited between Yom Kippur and Sukkos being that it is days of rejoicing. No mention is made regarding after Sukkos.

Other Opinions: Some Poskim rule that the custom is to recite Tachanun after Sukkos. [Shaareiy Teshuvah ibid; Ashel Avraham Butchach 131]
