Q. See question above. Can an Avel during Shloshim (the thirty days after the beginning of mourning for a dear one) attend a Melave Malka (meal at the end of Shabbos), in which singing the Zemiros and happy chants of that particular meal if he is invited to say words of Torah?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is permitted if the Avel does not wash for bread or partakes in the meal offered.
