I prayed in a chasidic shul in europe. They did not say tachnun in sharis of friday and sunday.

I asked them what the reason is and they answered me that in the days close to shabbes tachnun should not be recited.

Is there a halachic source (makor) for this?

The closest answer i could find was this: Special occasions where various Chassidim don't say Tachanun

It just speaks on friday and there is a source of a siddur but not a halachic sefer.

    I know that Friday Mincha doesn't have Tachnun (I believe due to the generic exemption of no Tachnun on the Mincha before a 'holiday'), but I've never seen that extended to Sunday, or even Friday morning. You're saying that even by Shacharis on those days there is no Tachnun? Aug 12 '15 at 13:42

  • Sunday isn't listed as a day to omit Tachanun by the Tur, anyone quoted in the Batei Yosef, Chadash or Yisrael, by the Shulchan Aruch or its Mapah, the Levush, the Eliya Rabba, the Taz, the Magen Avraham, the Beiur haGra, the Chayei Adam, the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, the Mishna Berura or the Aruch haShulchan. Just FWIW.

Mesechta Tanis daf 27B we don't do a fast day on Sunday due to the nazarites so that might be a reason for not saying tachnun Maybe!!!
