Calculating Sheloshim


My Mother passed on Chol Hamoed Pesach (April 13th – 17th Nissan) and I need help calculating sheloshim. Please and thank you.


The shloshim is counted from the day of the burial (for those that were at the funeral). That day is day 1, and on day 30 is the shloshim. The shloshim ends after daybreak of day 30. If you let me know the day of the burial, I’ll calculate it for you. 


Shach Y:D 402-5

  1. Thank you for your reply: The date of burial was April 16th, 2017

    1. I am assuming that the burial was during the day, therefore the shloshim will be on the 19th of Iyar, the 15th of May.
      Hamakom yenachem eschem b’toch shar aveili tzoin v’yerushalayim.

  2. My father passed away on November 17 during the daytime. he was also buried that day on November 17. When does shloshim begin and when is it over? Thank you so much.

      The sheloshiim already began the day you stood up from shiva, and it goes until the morning of the second day of Rosh Chodesh Teves, Dec. 16.
