Turkey for Descendants of the Shaloh (after marriage)
I am descended from the Shaloh hakadosh and my family minhag is not to eat turkey. I am now married to someone whose family does not have that minhag and I want to know if I must continue to avoid eating turkey or not? Would I need to do a hataras nedarim? My family is definitely not ben achar ben from the Shaloh if that makes a difference.
Indeed, not all descendants of the Shaloh have adopted this minhag. But those who have done so should continue adhering to it. Many descendants of the Shaloh follow this minhag even though they’re not ben achar ben. This proves that the minhag was kept even when marrying others who haven’t had this custom (though generally the women follows the husband’s custom).
