Purim Katan

The Daily Halacha Moment - Purim Katan🎭


״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן

‎העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)


“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

What are some customs of Purim Katan?


Answer:

Purim Katan is the fourteenth day of Adar Alef.


Tachanun is not recited on the fourteenth and the fifteenth of Adar Alef.[1]

When the fourteenth of Adar is on Sunday, Tzidkatecha is not recited during Minchah on the Shabbat prior.[2]

One may neither deliver a eulogy nor fast on the fourteenth or fifteenth of Adar Alef.

[3] One may, however, eulogize a talmid chacham on the fourteenth and the fifteenth of Adar Alef.

[4]It is proper to prepare a seudah on Purim Katan (the fourteenth of Adar Alef in open cities, and the fifteenth in walled cities). [5] On the fourteenth and fifteenth of Adar Alef, one does not observe any of the mitzvot of Purim, i.e. keriat haMegillah, matanot la’evyonim, mishloach manot, and seudat Purim.

[6] However, it is praiseworthy to add a dish to one’s regular meal in honor of the day. [7]

An avel on Purim Katan must observe all of the halachot of avelut.[8]

Al HaNissim is not recited on the fourteenth or fifteenth of Adar Alef.[9]
