Halocho #352- What is Yom Kippour Kattan?

The day before Rosh Chodesh is called Yom Kippour Kattan.

In certain communities, Mincha (the afternoon prayers) on Yom Kippour Kattan includes prayers asking for repentance, so as to begin the new month with a "clean slate".

Some have the custom to fast on Yom Kippour Kattan.

Tachanun is not recited this afternoon.

Tonight is Rosh Chodesh Tamuz; don't forget Ya'aleh Veyavo in the Amida and Birkat Hamazon.
