Question:

My father was niftar on ב תמוזand was buried on ה תמוז

When is shloshim? I think it may fall on Shabbas-if this is the case should we go to the Kever on Friday or Sunday?

thank you!

Answer:

 

Hamakom yinachem eschem b’toch shar aveilei tzion  v’yerushalayim.

The shloshim is calculated as the thirtieth day after the burial, even if there were a number of days between the passing and the burial. Therefore the shloshim will be on the Tuesday the 5th of av, July 17th.
