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.

  • @DoubleAA - Just maybe? Or certainly? May 16, 2012 at 1:58

    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. Jul 26, 2012 at 13:03
