When the 17th of Tammuz is on Shabbat


This year, if Mashiach does not arrive, the fast of the 17th of Tammuz will be observed on Sunday the 18th of Tammuz, because the 17th is Shabbat.

In such a circumstance, the laws of the Three Weeks of Mourning begin Motzaei Shabbat (Saturday night), so that one could not shave then, etc., even according to those who permit these practices on the evening of the 17th of Tammuz in a normal year.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:100)

Have a good day,
