Calculating the shloshim. If the day of death was 8th of shevat and burial was in israel on the 10th of shevat. What dsy is the shloshim? Also can my wife buy a new custom wig during the 12 months.
ב"ה Shalom First of all, my condolences to the Avelim. The Shloshim are counted as an additional 23 days immediately following the Shiva. As far as a new wig. I spoke to the Rabbi Yakov Ariel shlit"a , the Chief Rabbi of Ramat Gan, and he said that since the wig is in order to fulfil a mitzvah, a woman who is in the year of Avelut, may buy a new wig if the old one is already intolerable. Besorot Tovot and Shabbat Shalom
