The special service Tikkun Yom Kippur Katan was first printed in Sha'arei Ziyyon (Prague, 1662) by R. Nathan Nata Hannover. Later it appeared in different versions and in special books which were very popular until the 19th century. The tikkun (special prayer) in Hemdat Yamin is particularly well known. The first halakhic reference to Yom Kippur Katan appears in Bayit Hadash by R. Joel Sirkes. The celebration of Yom Kippur Katan became widespread because of the many commendations by R. Isaiah b. Abraham Horowitz in Shenei Luhot ha-Berit. Later the custom became popular among the pious who observed this day as though it were sanctioned by halakhah without any connection with Kabbalah.
