Assuming that it is a hefseik and forbidden to interrupt between amidah and tachanun, should a person who regularly recites vidui change his custom and delay the recital of vidui until later on, after the kaddish titkabeil, or even perhaps after shir shel yom (the end of davening)?

    Who said vidui is a hefsek? Maybe it's part of tachanun. – Double AA May 16 '12 at 1:57
  • @DoubleAA - Just maybe? Or certainly? – Adam Mosheh May 16 '12 at 1:58
  • Seems from the Ben Ish Chai that it is hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=40322&st=&pgnum=105 – sam May 16 '12 at 2:46

    As per Minhag HaGro one says the Selichos (on BeHaB and fast days) between the Amidah and Tachanun. These Selichos have the Vidui (once/thrice depending on custom) and the entire (20 - 40 minute) addition is not considered a hefseik. – Danny Schoemann Jul 26 '12 at 13:03
