An onen's requirements


An onen, a person whose immediate relative awaits burial, is exempt from the commandments of the Torah, but obligated in the prohibitions. This means that he must eat kosher food, for example, but he does not recite blessings before eating that food.

(Code of Jewish Law, Yoreh Deah 341:1)

Have a good day,
