Tikkun Chatzos During The Summer


Is it permitted to say tikkun chatzos during the period from shavous until after tisha b’av if one wants to say it or should one specifically refrain from saying it during that time




There are different opinions there is an opinion that from Shavous until after Tisha Bav that it doesn’t have to be said, another opinion is that from 15th of Av until the 15th of Iyar it should be said, however the Arizal held that it should be said all year round. (See Mishna Berura 1-9)

On a practical level If you want to say tikkun chatzos then, that is great, just make sure to say bli neder before starting to say it. Saying tikkun chatoz at his time of the year is especially meaningful, especially during bein hamitzarim. In fact, it is time to be more careful to say it at this time.

משנה ברורה ס’ א’ ס”ק ט’, וז”ל “(ט) ראוי לכל וכו’ – והמקובלים האריכו מאוד בגודל מעלת קימת חצות כי רבה היא. וכבר נדפס בסידורים סדר ההנהגה על פי כתבי האר”י ז”ל. … האחרונים קיבלו, מ”שכבי” עד “קומי”, היינו משבועות שאומרים “שכבי” עד תשעה באב שאומרים “קומי”, אין צריך לקום בלילה. ויש אומרים, מט”ו באב עד ט”ו באייר יקום. והנוהגים על פי קבלה סוברים שצריך לקום תמיד.
