Music at a Seudas Mitzvah During Sefirah


jewish-musicThere is a machlokes H’Poskim as to whether one may have music and dancing at a Seudas Mitzvah (i.e. Sheva Brachos, Bris, Pidyon Haben, Bar Mitzvah, Hachnosoas Sefer Torah, Siyum) during Sefirah. Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 493:1, Piskei Tshuvos 493:5

The generally accepted practice is to avoid music and dancing between Rosh Chodesh Iyar and Lag B’aomer even at a Seudas Mitzvah. However, those who do have music and dancing at a Seudas Mitzvah “have upon whom to rely” (i.e. Magen Avraham, Mishnah Brurah, Kaf Hachaim, Igros Moshe). Piskei Tshuvos 493:5, Igros Moshe OC2:95, EH1:97
