  • One should not shop, do renovations or plant for pleasure without real necessity.

Eating Meat and Drinking Wine

  • The custom is to refrain from eating meat and poultry or drinking wine and grape juice during the nine days. This also pertains to children.
  • Eating meat and drinking wine is permitted for Shabbos.


  • Laundering is prohibited even for use after Tisha B’Av. One may not even give clothing to a non-Jewish cleaner.
  • The prohibition of laundering includes linens, tablecloths, and towels.
    A person who has no clean clothes may wash what he needs until the Shabbos before Tisha B’Av.
  • Children’s diapers and clothing that constantly get dirty may be washed by need even during the week of Tisha B’Av, in private.

Wearing Freshly Laundered Clothing

  • It is forbidden to wear freshly laundered clothing during the nine days. This includes all clothing except that which is worn to absorb perspiration.
  • Therefore, one must prepare before the nine days by wearing freshly laundered suits, pants, shirts, dresses, blouses and the like for a short time so that they may be worn during the nine days. Socks, undershirts and underwear need not be prepared.
  • Here too, the prohibition of using freshly laundered items applies to linens, tablecloths, and towels.
  • One may wear freshly laundered Shabbos clothing, as well as use clean tablecloths and towels. Changing bed linen though is prohibited.

Bathing and Swimming

  • The custom is not to bathe for pleasure even in cold water.
  • Bathing in cold water for medical reasons or to remove dirt or perspiration is permitted. (Where cold water is required, hot water may be added to cold water as long as the mixture is not comfortably warm.)
  • Swimming is prohibited except for medical reasons.

The Day Before Tisha B’Av

  • The custom is to eat a final meal after mincha and before sunset, consisting of bread, cold hard-boiled eggs and water. The meal is eaten while seated on the ground, a portion of the bread should be dipped in ashes and eaten After the meal, one may sit normally until sunset. Shoes may be worn all day until sunset.

  • All eating and drinking is forbidden. This includes rinsing the mouth and brushing teeth, except in a case of great distress.
  • Swallowing capsules or bitter tablets or liquid medicine without water is permitted.
  • The ill or elderly as well as pregnant and nursing women are required to fast even if it is difficult, unless a doctor says that fasting may injure health, in which case a competent rabbi should be consulted.
  • Boys under thirteen years old and girls under twelve years old are not allowed to fast even part of the day.
  • Those not required to fast should eat only what is needed to preserve their health.

Bathing and Washing

  • All bathing for pleasure is prohibited even in cold water including the hands, face and feet. Ritual washing upon waking, after using the bathroom, touching covered parts of the body or before praying is permitted, but only up to the knuckles. One may wash dirty or sullied portions of the body (including cleaning the eyes of glutinous material), and if necessary may use soap or warm water to remove the dirt or odor. Washing for cooking or for medical reasons is permitted. A woman may not immerse on Tisha B’Av since relations are prohibited. Washing to commence the clean days is permitted.


  • Anointing for pleasure is prohibited including oil, soap, alcohol, cream, ointment, perfume, etc.
  • Anointing for medical reasons is permitted, as well as using deodorant to remove bad odor.

Wearing Leather Shoes

  • Even shoes made partially of leather are prohibited.
  • Shoes made of cloth, rubber or plastic are permitted.
  • Wearing leather shoes is permitted for medical reasons.

Learning Torah

  • Since the heart rejoices in the study of Torah, it is prohibited to learn topics other than those relevant to Tisha B’Av or mourning.
  • One may learn: Lamentations with its midrash and commentaries, portions of the Prophets that deal with tragedy or destruction, the third chapter of Moed Katan (which deals with mourning), the story of the destruction (in Gittin 56b-58a, Sanhedrin 104, and in Josephus), and the halachos of Tisha B’Av and mourning.

  • One should not give a gift except to the needy.
  • Things that divert one from mourning such as idle talk, reading the newspaper, taking a walk for pleasure, etc. are prohibited.
  • Smoking is prohibited until afternoon, and then only for one who is compelled to and in private.
  • The custom is to refrain until midday from any time-consuming work that diverts one from mourning. In a case of financial loss, consult the rabbi.


  • Ashkenazim do not wear tefillin at Shacharit, nor is a blessing made on tzitzit. At Mincha, tefillin is worn and those who wear a tallit gadol make the blessing then.
  • At Mincha, the prayers Nacheim and Aneinu are added to the Shmonah Esrei during the blessing “Veliyerushalayim” and “Shema Koleinu” respectively. “Sim Shalom” is said in place of “Shalom Rav.” If one forgot them and completed that bracha, he need not repeat the prayer.
  • The custom is to sanctify the new moon the night after Tisha B’Av, preferably after having eaten something.

The Day After Tisha B’Av 

  • The laws of the nine days continue after the fast until halachic noon on the tenth of Av.
