Question:

Dear Rabbonim,

Should one take part in the opening of an furniture exhibit during the three weeks, which will have festivities (including music, drinks etc), is located in a conservative synagogue centre hall and which will also be running over Shabbos certainly leading to more Hilul Shabbos.

I believe technically all three aspects would not be prohibited but would it be correct?

Thank you in advance

Kind regards

Answer:

There is a problem of listening to the music. Perhaps there might be also a chilul Hashem aspect, that you are participating, supporting and condoning an event that is being held on Shabbos in a conservative hall.
