According to traditional kabbalah, Hoshanah Rabbah is analogous to Yom Kippur in the sense of being a day of final judgment for the year, my question is why isn’t Avinu Malkeinu part of the Hoshanah Rabbah liturgy? It would seem to fit just like it does during the high holidays.

  • Apparently some do.

  • Probably the halachists were only going to let the kabbalists mess with things so far. Chol hamoed is hardly halachicly a traditional time for that sort of behavior.
