Halacha - The Nine Days
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: No, not even during the nine days and certainly not on Tisha B'Av. Unless one suffers from such severe stress etc. that would render the knitting a form of therapy, in which case the item should still not be finished until afterwards.

Halacha - Nine Days
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

While the onions are considered to have absorbed meat flavor that renders them forbidden to eat together with meat, the onions will certainly not give one the pleasure of eating a juicy steak that is forbidden during the 9 days.

Halacha - Tisha b'AV
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

We are not permitted to eat meat during the 9 days as a sign of mourning in commemoration of the destruction of the Beis HaMikdash. Since outward acts of mourning are not performed on Shabbos, one may eat meat, just as a person sitting shiva on a parent R"L would not sit on the floor on Shabbos.

Halacha - nine days
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

There is no heter to wait and wear the clothing after Tisha B'Av because the problem is not just in the wearing but in the laundering itself, which is a distraction from mourning over the churban. While the Gemora and Shulchan Aruch permit one who only owns a single garment to wash it even the week of Tisha B'Av, the Poskim explain that this only applies to an undergarment. However, under your circumstances where you are traveling the day after Tisha B'Av, you may be lenient and launder the clothing the night following the fast even though usually laundry may not be washed until noon of the following day.

Halacha - Havdala on Tisha B'Av
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Ideally one would use chamar medina, which according to many opinions includes brewed coffee and pure orange juice. However many Poskim question whether we have any drink today that fits the criteria of chamar medina, and they recommend using grape juice but not wine.

Halacha - Nine days. Help!
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Halacha is that you may go ahead and buy it. However, R' Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zatzal once pointed out when asked a similar question that no one would ever ask such a question when sitting shiva for a parent, which in Halacha would be equivalent. Putting it in that perspective really illustrates that we don't truly feel the mourning the way we should. I'm not advising you to wait on the computer, just pointing out that we all need a little introspection regarding our attitude towards the churban.

Halacha - Shaving durin 3 weeks in shana Reshona.
Submitted by Yehuda  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Even though it disturbs her, there is no provision in halacha for him to shave. Rather, he must gently explain to his wife that we must follow halacha even when it is difficult just as one would give up their job if it entailed working on Shabbos. However, there is a provision the opposite direction, a woman may shave her legs during the three weeks out of concern that she will become repulsive to her husband.

This only applies under normal marital circumstances. However, if there are problems, a Rav familiar with the details of the situation should be consulted.
