Hi Rabbi, Can we travel during and after the omer? Thanks
Shalom, Thank you for your question. It is permitted to travel during the days of counting the Omer. Some people are cautious about traveling during the days of mourning leading up to the 9th of Av – but that is because those days are inherently negative, and we are warned to be careful during them. (Even then, from the letter of the law travel is permitted during those days). But during the Omer days there is no reason at all to refrain from traveling. Blessings.
