An Avel

Havdala for an Avel:

An Avel is obligated to recite Havdala or hear it from others. When an Avel recites Havdala he is to omit the verses of Hinei Kel Yeshuasi and rather begin from “Borei Peri Hagafen”.[1] The custom is for an Avel to recite the blessing over Besamim as is usually done.[2] It is disputed whether an Avel is to recite Vayiten Lecha.[3]
