Situations Where Shehyanu May be Said During the Three Weeks

Situations Where Sheheyanu May be Said During the Three Weeks
Day: Thursday
Date: July 28, 2016
Parshat: Pinhas
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 551

A new fruit that may not be available to say shehehyanu after Tisha Be'av may be eaten during the three weeks with a shehehyanu. If possible it should be saved and the beracha should be made on Shabbat. More exceptions to the rule against saying shehehyanu during the three weeks include a sick person, a pregnant woman who craves such a fruit, and a child who is too young to understand the significance of the three weeks. If a person accidentally started eating a new fruit without saying shehehyanu he should stop eating and save the rest until after Tisha Be'av and say the shehehyanu then.
