Halacha - Yahrtzeit and semachot
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is it ok to go to a wedding motzaei the yahrtzeit of one's parent. Is it not a bit disrespectful to wait for it to finish to run to a simcha? Thanks
Answer: There is a difference of opinion in the Poskim if one may attend a wedding on the yahrtzeit itself after the first year. However, even the stringent opinion only forbids on the day of the yahrtzeit and not the following night.
