If the pasuk for dressing up is Mikra Kodesh, then it is zman grama and only men are obligated. Not women. Also why isn’t there a special bracha for men when they dress up for the Chag, they are performing a mitzvah? Thanks for your mekoros and sevaros.BEApril 1, 2021 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1961812Reb EliezerParticipant
It is part of Simchas Yom Tov. See SA O’CH 529,1-2 See MB 529 s’k 12April 5, 2021 9:21 am at 9:21 am #1962356NechomahParticipant
What is the special bracha for women who are dressing up? Anybody who buys a new garment of sufficient value is supposed to say a shecheyanu on it. Dressing up on YT is part of simchas YT. According to one drasha I heard, kedusha of Shabbos comes from HKB”H, but the kedusha of YT comes from Klal Yisroel, and one way to give it kedusha is to dress up in special clothes.April 5, 2021 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #1962474WithheldParticipant
This is a bit off topic but it does somehow come in!
Nowadays girls buy new dresses every second day, should they say Shechiyonu whenever they buy a new drees?April 5, 2021 3:20 pm at 3:20 pm #1962498NechomahParticipant
I think it probably depends on the cost of the item in question.April 5, 2021 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #1962565Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
>> Nowadays girls buy new dresses every second day, should they say Shechiyonu whenever they buy a new drees?
the answer might be – don’t buy so many new dresses so that you can still say Shechiyonu
“I am told” that “kosher” stores start immediate after-Pesach discounts so that you could shop even during sefirah based on a permission not to miss the discount. Is this working out halakhically when two sides play the game knowing how to avoid the rules? Does somewhat pasken that stores can do it to maintain parnasa? Genuinely interested in the answer, even if biased on the side of spending less….April 5, 2021 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #1962548ujmParticipant

You were told incorrect information. There’s no need for a loophole. It is permissable to buy clothing during sefirah.
You need to reassess from whom you accept information.April 6, 2021 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1962844Reb EliezerParticipant
If you get a bargain during sefira, buy it but wait to wear it.April 6, 2021 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1962855YtParticipant

DY >It is permissable
shhh. “I am told” means by my kids, and it is great that they rebel through humras, I prefer it that way! I will only stop them if a humra is used to excuse them from doing something they should do (school work, help at home, etc). In this case, there is no good reason to be meikil even it is allowed. If there is a certain mood for sefirah, then why not follow it.
RebE>>> If you get a bargain during sefira, buy it but wait to wear it.
my question here is that the seller creates the bargain, knowing the rules. If it were due to pandemic losses, OK. But this is an annual thing, girls run to the laptops to look at one-day bargains right after yomtov havdala. Maybe, we could simply buy from same company later on and send two check – for 80% and for 20%, signed as tzedokah
Another twist – last year there was a psak allowing music during lockdown if it makes things more tolerable (and prevents covid infracions). We used that. This year, we are machmir on covid, but already adapted and see no need for kulos.April 7, 2021 2:22 am at 2:22 am #1962929☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I don’t get it. I pointed out that your whole tayna on the storeowners is based on a fallacious halacha you made up (or believed) and your response is to ignore the correct halacha and insist that they are knowingly breaking (or evading) the “rules” – which don’t actually exist??
