Question:

My wife and daughter passed away in mid-October of 2018. We are thinking of having the unveiling of their tombstones on Sunday, Oct. 6th 2019 – which falls during the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippor.

Is there any concerns or is it considered special to have the unveiling during that period?

Thank you

Answer:

May H-shem comfort you from this tremendous loss.

There are no concerns and it may be done then. In fact there are opinions that it is even a preferred time, since during days of selichos are day of soul searching and introspection.
