Basically, there are 3 separate mehalchim 1. Just drink the wine or grape juice yourself (no difference b/t the two) (Mechaber) 2. Find a child and he should drink it; if you cant find one - then drink it yourself (Rema) 3. Beer - (Aruch Hashulchan) Each of these views have a wide following among acharonim and contemporary poskim. Most Sefardim follow the ...

Any reason to take a cold shower? The halocho is that any washing for enjoyment is forbidden. If it is not for enjoyment, see the link quoted by eramm above (ohr.edu/5228). If they like cold showers better, should they specifically take hot showers? My guess is that we would say that בטלה דעתו אצל כל אדם – even though he likes cold showers better, he ...

Most of the shi'tot were covered in other answers While the Ramo recommended giving the wine to a child, the Mishna Brurah ((651:70)) pointed out that this cannot just be “any child.” The child utilized must have reached the age of training for brachos and will drink the proper amount, but not yet reached the age of training to mourn over Yerushalayim. ...

I had the same question and found this answer online: The bottom line is: R' Moshe Feinstein rules that while one should not wear freshly laundered underclothing during the nine days, if one doesn't have any (preworn) underclothes he/she can wear whatever they have. Link to above article: http://www.vbm-torah.org/3weeks/mf.htm I'm not sure if this ruling ...

The source for those who begin one verse earlier is the Eishel Abraham of Butatach (Siman 138) who explains that this is because the custom is to chant the verse "Eicha Esa Levadi" in the same tune as Megillas Eicha and it is therefore considered a "tochecha" (reproach) and we do not begin an Aliyah negatively. See also the Likutey Maharich (3:52:1) who ...

Unfortunately, I once had to ask a shiala because my daughter had been discovered to have lice on the afternoon before Tisha b'Av, and the protocol is to launder all the clothes that might have come into contact and have lice or lice eggs on them. My own rabbi was out of town, so I called Rabbi Barry Fruendel of Kesher Israel Congregation in Washington, ...

If you see the Mishna Brurah in Siman 552 he writes that's from the din of gemara,but regarding minhag its assur from Rosh Chodesh

In answer to your 2nd question, if the wine is "cooked off", I think that the issue in Mishnah Brurah, mentioned above, is if something obtains the taste of wine. MB does address "chometz" or vinegar, stating that it's OK to use wine vinegar, despite the fact that it is made from wine. That's b/c vinegar does not have the taste of wine, and people don't ...

Nit'e Gavriel, Ben Ham'tzarim volume 1, chapter 39, paragraph 6: It's appropriate to be careful not to eat food kneaded with wine or grape juice from rosh chodesh [Av] and on. In a footnote, he indicates that this comes from applying Magen Avraham 551:29 — that food cooked with meat is forbidden by custom — to wine. He then notes that ...

Form kashrut.com (Footnotes in that article point to other references:) All meat and poultry and their derivatives, even if no meat or poultry is actually visible, e.g., chicken soup, are included. Pareve dishes cooked in a utensil used for meat are permitted. [If a small piece of meat accidentally fell into a pareve dish and its taste will not be ...

These questions are dealt with here: The Shulchan Aruch (OC 551:9) writes that one mustn’t eat meat or drink wine during the nine days. The Rema (OC 551:10) adds that if one has a seudas mitzva during this time then one may partake of wine and meat as such celebrations are incomplete without them. This includes Shabbos meals, a bris seuda, a pidyon ...

Today's HalachaText said that clothing should be worn for at least 30 minutes. I asked them for a source and they said this number came from Rav Elyashiv Ztl. שוב מצאתי I was looking for something else in Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen's Laws of the Three Weeks, and found that he quotes Rav YS Elyashiv there as saying a half an hour (page 85); in a footnote he ...

I got this in an email from a "dailyhalacha" service: During the Nine days (beginning Rosh Chodesh Av) the custom is that one does not wear freshly laundered clothing. Therefore, one should wear all the clothing one will need during the Nine days for a short while (according to many Poskim - 20 minutes), sometime before the start of the Nine ...

I found this on dinonline.com: it is permitted to dry the laundry in the Nine Days. This is not considered part of the laundry, and is therefore permitted. Ironing the laundry, however, is forbidden, but creases can be pressed out in an unprofessional way. The term "unprofessional way" is vague, and, in my case, I don't really know what types of ...
