Calculating shloshim


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!



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.



Y:D 395-1, Taz Y:D 402-6, Shach ibid 5.
