Kiddush Levanah during the Nine Days


We don't perform Kiddush Levanah during the nine day national mourning period leading up to Tishah b'Av, because of the sadness of those days.

Others disagree, because we want to accumulate mitzvot and because we are concerned that clouds might cause a person to miss Kiddush Levanah altogether because of the long delay.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 426:2; Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 426:8)

Have a great day,
