Moving During Sefirat HaOmer

Updated: Apr 16, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Moving & Sefirat HaOmer🏡

״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)


May one move into a new house during Sefirat HaOmer?


Interesting question. One may enter a new house during the omer period and does not need to push it off to after Lag BaOmer. One may also paint and renovate his home during the omer period, even if he is not yet living in it. [1]

Similarly, one may have a chanukat habayit and recite divrei Torah, sing with one's mouth and the proper tikkun for it which is a Seudat Mitzvah, especially in Eretz Yisrael. [2]

Adapted From Rabbi Yonatan Nacson's "Laws Of The Holidays"


[1]. See Chazon Ovadia, Yom Tov, p. 269; Yechaveh Daat 3:30; Ashrei HaIsh, vol. 3, pages 431–432; and Tzitz Eliezer, vol. 11, 41:2. See also Shevet HaLevi, vol. 10, 135:3. The reason why this is different from the 3 weeks is because the 3 weeks is a greater time of mourning since the Bet Hamikdash was burned. See footnote in Chazon Ovadia, Yom Tov, p. 269.

[2]. Chazon Ovadia, Yom Tov, p. 271; Yechaveh Daat 3:30; Yalkut Yosef 489:25. This is unlike the Revivot Efraim, vol. 2, 155:30 which says one may not have a Chanukat Habayit during Sefirat HaOmer. See also Igrot Moshe, Y.D. 3:161.
