Halacha - havdalah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: My wife who is in the Chevra Kadisha was asked to be ready right after the Zman for a tahara. I had three options 1) wait with Havdalah until she comes home 2) Make havdalah before maariv and find a late Minyan. 3) Daven Maariv with a minyan who keep an earlier Zman I generally try to daven Maariv vadai laila.
Answer: I would recommend davening Maariv earlier and making Havdala immediately at the zman you keep, just remember to repeat Kriyas Shema. It would also be acceptable to delay Havdala until your wife's return, but she would have to remember to say baruch hamavdil bein kodesh l'chol, and neither of you could eat until after Havdala.
