Based on On Tish'a B'Av,can someone say the typical "Mourner's statement" to any/everyone else?, may one perform the mitzvah of Nichum Aveilim for one who is sitting shiv'a on Tish'a B'av? Would it make a difference as to when during the day it was, or what the person was saying to console/comfort the mourner?

  • Interesting question. What seems a bit contradictory, is that Tish'a B'av is called a mo'ed. Yet, unlike any other mo'ed, it doesn't end aveilut / shiva.

  • Why would you think that one can't?

  • @Al Berko Perhaps because all Israel are regarded as mourners on Tisha BeAv.

  • @Epicentre so what? Can mourners not console each other?
