Shaving on postponed Yom Ha’atzmaut

undefined

Rabbi Yoel Lieberman

Iyyar 7, 5770
Question
I’ve understood Rav Liberman allow to shave during yom ha’atzmaut even if we are during sefirat haomer. The question is: is it allowed even if Yom Ha’azmaut is postponed?
Answer
The ruling of the Chief Rabbinate is that with moving of Yom Ha'atzmaut it takes with it all the applicable practices of the day. So based on the sources in the earlier question we were permitted to shave.
