Housekeeping during shivah


Although we say that a mourner is not supposed to engage in work or his/her job lest it distract from the shivah, a mourner is still permitted to take care of his home, such as in washing dishes and making beds, or cooking, as needed.

(Code of Jewish Law, Yoreh Deah 380:22)

Have a good day,
