Buying Items On Sale During The Three Weeks

The Daily Halacha Moment - Items on Sale & Three Weeks 🧥


״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)


“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

May one purchase items on sale during the Three weeks?

May one purchase Teffilin/Sefarim etc during the Three weeks?


Answer:

If items are on sale during this time and will not be on sale after Tisha B’av, one may

purchase them to avoid a financial loss, provided that one wears and or uses the item bought after Tisha B’av. [1]


Similarly, one may purchase a new pair of Tefillin or a Tallit during this time, since these are

needed for Mitzvot. [2] Furthermore, sefarim may be purchased even if it will make one happy, being that an item for a mitzvah is permitted to be purchased. Similarly, one may purchase a new bookshelf for

the Sefarim. [3]


One should not purchase a car during this time. However, if one needs the car for

business or if the car is on sale one may purchase it. [4]
