Standing for Vanachnu Lo Neida in Tachanun

“Vanachnu Lo Neida”

Standing at the end of Tachanun: In the paragraph of “Vanachnu Lo Neida” said in the end of Tachanun, some Poskim[1] rule it is proper to recite the words “Vanachnu Lo Neida” while sitting and then stand and recite the continuation from “Mah Naaseh”. Other Poskim[2] however make no mention of this. [Practically, the custom of the Rebbe was to stand upon saying Mah Naaseh, and so is the widespread custom amongst Chassidim.[3]]

Aloud: Some Poskim[4] rule the above words of “Vanachnu Lo Neida” and the continuation of “Mah Naaseh” are to be said aloud. Other Poskim[5] however make no mention of this.

  3. [2] See Admur 131/2 who completely omits this addition; It is also omitted from the Siddur and Ketzos Hashulchan 24/3; I did not find it mention in Kaf Hachaim 131; See Al Minhagim Umikoroseihem [Rav Tuvia Bloy] p. 151-152
  4. [3] Heard from Rav Leibal Groner that so was Rebbe’s custom; See Hearos Ubiurim 1062 p. 63 that so was the Rebbe’s custom and that the Rebbe mentioned in a Maaneh that not every law omitted by Admur means that he does not hold of it; New Tehilas Hashem wrote this directive as custom of Rebbe, as well as the annotated Siddur of Rav Raskin
