Question:

Hello.
My son’s birthday is during the nine days and we are postponing his birthday party until after Tisha B’Av. During the nine days are we permitted to buy a birthday present for him online that will arrive after the nine days? We would like to order it now so that it arrives in time for his birthday party. We follow Sephardic minhag.

Thank you.

Answer:

It is permitted if the delivery and payment will be after Tisha B’av, otherwise it should wait until after Tisha B’av.

May we all merit to see the coming of moshiach.
