shower on yartzeit

Question:

Is one allowed to take a shower or shave on a yahrzeit for a father?

 

Answer:

Ir is permitted to shave and shower on a parent’s yahrzeit (except for the first one which is like an extension of the first year’s mourning). The only resrtictions are not to go to a wedding, and not to travel unless needed.

Best wishes
