Tehillim and Fast Days


Can we say Tehillim on all fast days or are there some fast days we can’t say Tehillim?



We are allowed to say Tehillim on fast days. In fact, a fast day is really meant for us to repent and improve ourselves, and saying Tehillim is great thing to do on a fast day. The only exception to this is Tisha B’Av, when we generally don’t say Tehillim unless it is for a sick person, etc.

Best wishes


Magen Avrohom 454-6.

  1. I do have a follow up question- I took it upon myself to say a few פרקים of Tehillim every day, so on Tisha B’Av should I not say them?
    Thank you for the quick answer
