Nitei Gavriel Aveilus2 23:20 says that the father of the baby can participate in a Bris and Seuda for his son even during the Sheloshim. אבי הבן, כשהוא אבל עושה משתה ושמחה ביום המילה ומשתתף אף בתוך שלשים In the notes he mentions the Shach Yoreh Deah 394:2 quoting the Derisha in the name of the Rokeach that one should not make a Simcha and party on ...

The Rama (YD 391:2) quotes opinions both ways if a mourner may partake of the meal at a circumcision (the doubt is if it is considered "celebratory" like a wedding is), and notes the custom is to permit a mourner to eat at such a meal only if held in his house. So according to that they could just host the circumcision [meal] at home.

I can pass along this bit of halacha (I will add bold for the relevant part) which I got in my email: Every day of Chol Hamoed we add ya'aleh v'yovo in Shemone Esrei and bentching. In Shemone Esrei it is added in the beracha of Retzei before the words v'sechezena eineinu. In bentching it is added in the beracha of Rachem before the words u'vnei ...

Below is part of an answer I posted with respect to another question, but it is directly applicable to your question: At [Yoma 29a][1], the Gemara quotes Rav Nachman who says that sinful thoughts are worse than sinful acts. Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, in his [Daf Yomi notes][2], comments that here the Gemara is using the term aveira and when it does, it is ...

One of my Rabbis put it like this: When I see a pretty, half-dressed (undressed?) girl get on the bus I also get excited. That is the way we were made and is nature. What makes the difference is what you do next. Do you stare or do you try to ignore her or avoid staring.

A source I have heard for a Seudas Preida is from Elisha. This is mentioned in Melachim-1 19:21 - see Radak that he made a Seuda when he was leaving.

Maseches Shabbos 117 amud beis: We learn it from the verse ויאמר משה : אכלוהו היום כי שבת היום לה', היום לא תמצאוהו בשדה. This verse, said regarding the man (manna), speaking about Shabbos, says the word Hayom 3 times (the man was their meals in those days), so the גמרא says that we learn it from there. This is the verse you were referring to in your ...

Generally speaking this topic depends on two things. When you made hamotzi did you have in mind that you were going to eat yogurt? And if you did, would you and most people consider this yogurt to be a dessert? If you did not have it in mind at the beginning then you would need to make another Bracho, same as if it is considered a dessert.

It's a safek if one is yotzei like this or not. It's best to be machmir and send more to a different person. Mikra'ei Kodesh - Hilchot Purim by Rabbi Moshe Harari, 12:24. המזמין את חברו לסעוד אצלו ביום פורים, ספק אם יצא בכך ידי חובת משלוח מנות. וטוב להחמיר ולשלוח מנה נוספת במקום מנה זו. He cites the Kaf Hachayim (OC 695:42) for this. The Kaf Hachayim ...

The short answer is no, they do not make a seudah. Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Yalkut Yosef says: For someone who would fulfill this mitzvah, the chamor is redeemed either with a sheep or money of equal value. The money is given to a Kohen, just like in a Pidyon HaBen. Shehechiyanu is not said unless one is wearing a new garment according to Yabia Omer. Here's ...

The source is in Mishna Sota 9, 11: מִשֶּׁבָּטְלָה סַנְהֶדְרִין, בָּטְלָה הַשִּׁיר מִבֵּית הַמִּשְׁתָּאוֹת, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר (ישעיה כד) בַּשִּׁיר לֹא יִשְׁתּוּ יָיִן וְגוֹ':‏Bartenura דִּכְתִיב (אֵיכָה ה) זְקֵנִים מִשַּׁעַר שָׁבָתוּ בַּחוּרִים מִנְּגִינָתָם, בַּזְּמַן שֶׁבָּטְלוּ הַזְּקֵנִים הַיּוֹשְׁבִים בַּשַּׁעַר שֶׁהֵם הַסַּנְהֶדְרִין, בָּטְלוּ ...

Whether or not one would make a Beracha on it is subject to a dispute of the Rishonim. Tosefos to Berachos 12a s.v. לא לאתויי נהמא cites a dispute between the Rif and the Ri about whether or not one makes a beracha rishona when unsure if a previous blessing covered it, with the Rif saying no and the Ri saying yes. The Rif is understood according to the "...

Once birkat hamazon has been said, the blessing on the drink is no longer valid, so a fresh blessing has to be made on the remaining portion of the drink; that in turn requires borei nefashos. (information provided in now deleted comments under question)
