Minhagim of Pesach Sheini


siddurThis Wednesday, the 14th of Iyar is Pesach Sheni. According to many opinions one does not fast on this day, make Hespedim, or a Hakomas Matzeivah. Piskei Tshuvos 492:1

There are different minhagim regarding the saying of Tachnun, (El Erech Apayim), and Lamenatzeach on Pesach Sheni (as the Shulchan Aruch does not mention to omit these tefillos). Many have the minhag to eat Matzah on Pesach Sheni by day, zecher L’korbon Pesach. Piskei Tshuvos 492:1, see also Shaarei Tshuva @ SA 131:19
