Three Weeks: Swimming

If you are swimming for:
  • Pleasure, you may swim during the Three Weeks but not during the Nine Days.
  • Exercise (you don't particularly enjoy swimming or you are not doing it for fun or to cool off), you may be permitted to swim even during the Nine Days. Consult a rabbi.
