Halacha - Women Saying Tikkun Chatzos
Submitted by Rachel  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It is wonderful that you have such feeling and sentiments, and I don't see any reason why a woman shouldn't say Tikkun Chatzos, although it certainly is not typical. It is based on Kabbalistic concepts and the text can be found in some Siddurim. If it's not in the Siddur you use regularly, ask your local Jewish bookseller. You might also find it fulfilling to read the Artscroll book on Tisha B'Av and other works that explain the concept of Galus.
