Yom Kippur Katan

Yom Kippur Katan is a practice that comes up on Erev Rosh Chodesh during many, but not all, months of the year.  It can involve fasting but always includes a longer service for Mincha which echoes the themes of repentance on Yom Kippur.  It is regularly observed by the very pious but there are times when Jewish leaders call for its observance more widely, usually in connection with a trying time in contemporary Jewish life.  During COVID, Artscroll made the full Yom Kippur Katan Mincha service available, and we thank them for sharing it.  For those who want to say the service without a Minyan, remember to skip the recitation of the 13 attributes of mercy.
