Mourner attending a brit milah

Tishrei 9, 5780
Question
As a mourner for parent in first year can I attend a brit milah ?
Answer
Shalom, Thank you for your question. Yes, a mourner, after the shiva days, may attend a brit milah, but should not stay and take part in the meal. However if refreshments (pastries and the like) are served they may partake of them. May you be blessed with only good tidings.
