Morning Prayers

Morning Prayers


In many communities it is customary to say Selichot before the morning prayers, as on all the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur—but this is not Chabad custom.

The Mizmor L'Todah psalm is omitted from the morning prayers, as is the Tachanun (all the penitential prayers). The day before Yom Kippur is considered a semi-holiday, and these prayers are not in line with the prevailing joyous atmosphere.
