Studying Torah during shivah


A mourner is not permitted to study Torah during shivah.

However, if the mourner is a schoolteacher for children, and there is no replacement, then he should learn Torah in order to teach it, for this is a fundamental public need.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 384:1; Shach Yoreh Deah 384:1)

Have a good day,
