Family Gathering for Avel

My husband is in the year of aveilus for his father. My daughter wants to make a barbeque and invite us, her siblings, my husband’s siblings and their children. Is my husband and his siblings allowed to attend?


An Avel should not attend a seuda with others outside of their home for the duration of Avelus. In the instance of a mitzva such as a Bris or wedding in the family there are various leniencies, which would not apply to this case which is not a seudas mitzavh.
