Mourner Attending Concert
My friend and I have tickets to a concert that we purchased several months ago. Unfortunately, my friend lost one of her parents two weeks ago. She is therefore not permitted to go to this concert. Except she is refusing to observe this halacha that she knows full well exists and insists on not observing. If she independently got herself there, I couldn’t stop her. But she depends on me for transportation to the theater because she doesn’t drive in the dark. She wants me to provide her transportation to this concert. If I refuse to take her, she will probably have no other way to get there.
What this boils down to is if I cave to her demands and take her to the concert, which I promised her I would do before her parent’s death, I will be sinning by helping her sin. To avoid committing the sin of aiding another’s sin, I would have to stand up to her and be an enforcer of Halacha, which I simply do not have the spine to do. She is a dear friend. I feel I cannot let her down by controlling her behavior and her Torah observance in the worst time of her life. I feel torn.
