I have heard that there is a minhag in ashkenazi communities to daven shacharit on the morning after yom hakippurim a bit earlier than the time that one would normally daven shacharit. Anyone have the source for that minhag?

  • Correct, in our shul we start 2 minutes before the regular time. Makes me smile every year.

  • That would cause total chaos in my Shul - 6 Minyanim, 4 of them finally back to regular schedule (different times for Selichos) - and the 2 minutes would probably just get used up discussing the change...and then start at regular time. Commented Oct 10, 2019 at 4:49

This custom is noted in Matteh Ephraim 624:14.


The Be'er Heitiv 624:6 also notes to daven early, the morning after Yom Kippur.
