Q. An individual during the time of Avelus and as part of it, has to undergo Shinui Makom or the change of one’s everyday established place in shul to a different unusual one. Can an Avel when he needs his original place, because after a fall he is in great pain and needs the support of a nearby bookcase, can he remain in his original seat?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a opinion is that in need he may remain in his ‘Makom Kavua’ or original established seating place, in case of need
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Aharon Miller Shlit’a
