The Minhag is not to say Tachanun in a Minyan where there is a Chasan present. Suppose a Kallah came to Shul (and there is no Chasan present) for Shacharis or Mincha and is in the ladies section, do the men say Tachanun?


Shevet HaLevi 5:12 - end of Teshuva says that a Kallah in the Ezras Nashim would not be sufficient reason not to say Tachanun since she is not combined with the Minyan.

    Does she exempt the women in the section with her? – Double AA Aug 29 '13 at 16:51
  • @DoubleAA: I do not know as this is not discussed in the Teshuva. – C. Ben Yosef Aug 29 '13 at 17:59

    What about a Chatan who is a Katan? He also does not combine with the minyan – Double AA Aug 30 '13 at 6:22

    @C.BenYosef I knew a Katan whose marriage day was set a week before his bar mitzva. – Adám Dec 20 '13 at 15:11

    Is the operant here that she's a woman or that she's a woman and therefore physically separated from the functioning minyan? – Isaac Kotlicky May 20 '15 at 11:24
