Motzei Tish'a Be'av

Motzei Tish'a Be'av
Day: Sunday
Date: July 26, 2015
Parshat: Va'ethanan
Hazon Ovadia: Ta'anit Pg.414-415

In general, the custom is to not eat meat until the end of the day after Tish'a Be'av since the Bet Hamikdash was still burning until then. However this year, since we observed Tish'a Be'av on the tenth of Av instead of the ninth, it is entirely permissible for Sephardim to eat meat immediately after the fast is over. Even in a normal year when Tish'a Be'av is observed on the correct day, it is permissible for Sephardim to bathe, shave, get haircuts and wash clothing immediately after the fast is over. However, Ashkenazim are strict with regards to these things even when Tish'a Be'av has not been pushed off and do not do these until the day after Tish'a Be'av. May HaShem answer all of our prayers and may this be last Tish'a Be'av observed as a day of mourning.
