Business on Chol haMoed


In general, business is prohibited on Chol haMoed (the Intermediate Days of holidays); it is stressful, and it takes away from one's concentration on the holiday. However, one may engage in business for the sake of preventing loss. One should minimize the strain involved, though.

The same is true regarding taking care of one's property. Thus one may water plants, if the alternative is that they will die, but one must do it in a manner which will not involve great strain.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 537:1-2)

Have a great Moed,
