โ€œAnyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-comeโ€ (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Question:

May one listen to music during the Three weeks?


Answer:

Dancing is forbidden beginning from the Seventeenth of Tammuz until after Tishah Bโ€™Av. [1]

Even though the custom during the rest of the year is to be lenient and listen to music, during Ben HaMetzarim one should refrain from doing so. However, one may listen to music at a seudat mitzvah. [2] One may not listen to either live or recorded music. [3]

During a seudat mitzvah, such as a pidyon haben, brit milah, siyum mesechet, bar mitzvah, or sheva berachot, the Sepharadic custom is to permit listening to music. [4] Ashkenazim, however, are stringent and do not listen to music even during a seudat mitzvah. [5]
