Mourning during the Omer, II


We have mentioned the practice of mourning during the Omer.

Just as we do not hold weddings during this period, so we do not hold celebrations involving dancing, whether for fun or in honor of a mitzvah.

(Mishneh Berurah 493:3; note that this is commonly understood to include any celebration involving live music)

Have a good day,
