Tehillim and Fast Days

Question:

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

 

Answer:

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

  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
