Going to Cemetery - Rosh Chodesh

27.10.19

Question

Is it ok to go to cemetery on Rosh Chodesh ?

Answer


To the Questioner, 

One should not go to the cemetery on Rosh Chodesh, rather he should go a day or two before or after. 

If the Yearly-day (yurtzeit) falls out on Rosh Chodesh, if there is no possibility that visiting the grave site may cause tears, one may go; if there is such a possibility, he should go one or two days before Rosh Chodesh.
