Q. (See questions 2787-88-89 above) Which should be done first (on Tisha Beav), the levayah of the aunt who was just niftar or the Hakamat Mazeiva of her husband who passed away almost a year ago?
A. Shulchan Aruch (Y.D. 354: 2) rules that when the levayah of a man and a woman are ready to be done at the same time, the burial of the woman takes precedence, as she is most prone to decay first. This applies even if the man died first (Ch. R”A Eiger ad loc).
Certainly when dealing with the Hakomas Hamatzeiva of the husband, the burial of the wife takes precedence.
