Can an Avel be a Chazen on Yom Kippur?

 

Question:

I am a chiyuv. I am usually a chazan on Yom Kippur, but this year my normal shul is closed. I got an offer from a different shul, can I be chazan? I saw seforim bring down that if you were חזן for many years it’s not a problem.

 

Answer:

No. The allowance is only in the same exact shul.
