Parent´s Yahrzeit on Rosh Chodesh


My father’s yahrzeit is on Rosh Chodesh Sivan, normally we go to the kever on erev R.Ch. is it correct? Or are we allowed to go R.Ch? Which is the best option ?




What you were doing until now is the best option, as it is said that the neshamos are not there on Rosh Chodesh, Yom Tov, etc. As a side point, I was told, that when one can not go to the cemetery on the Yahrtziet it is possible to go three days before or afterwards.

Best wishes
