Music During the Three Weeks

Music During the Three Weeks
Day: Tuesday
Date: July 22, 2014
Parshat: Mas'ei
Yalkut Yosef: 551

During the three weeks we do not listen to music, whether live or recorded. However one may listen to music at a celebration that falls out during that time, like a Brit or a Bar Mitzvah that is being celebrated on the day of the birthday itself. Ashkenazim do not listen to music at all during the three weeks, even at a celebration. A Hazan may sing the prayers and one may sing his Torah learning. However aside from these one should refrain from singing songs that will cause him to become overly happy.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at sephardichalacha.org
