Yichud with Biological Mother

Is yichud between a ger and his biological mother muter? What are all of the opinions in this?


It is permitted for a convert to be in a situation of yichud with his mother, whether she has converted or not.

The reason for this is that whether or not the mother is “related” to her son according to Torah law, she remains his biological mother, and there is no concern for arayos.


Toras HaYichud 2:2; Dvar Halachah, Hosafos Chadashos 7:19; Shevet Halevi Vol. 9 no. 260; Nitei Gavriel no. 14.
