Kiddush Levanah after a fast


One should not recite Kiddush Levanah immediately after fasting, since this is a time of sadness as well as hunger. However, one may do so after he has had a chance to eat. After Tishah b'Av, one must don shoes as well as eat before performing Kiddush Levanah.

After Yom Kippur one may recite Kiddush Levanah immediately, because of the joy of concluding the Divine judgment positively.

(Mishneh Berurah 426:11)

Have a great day,
