Erev Lag Ba’omer: Shaving and Haircuts Permitted this Friday In Honor of Shabbos

barberAlthough Shaving and Haircuts are prohibited until Lag Ba’omer, when Lag Ba’omer falls out on Sunday, as it does this year, shaving and haircuts are permitted on Friday in the honor of Shabbos, according to the ‘Rama’.

However, according to some, it is Assur to shave or take a haircut on Motzei Shabbos.

As always, please check with your Rav for clarification.

  1. Shaving is actually never permitted as per ALL Gedolim of the previous generation. The (moderated) actually said that seeing a Yid who shaves, makes him want to puke.

  2. Shaving is actually never permitted as per ALL Gedolim of the previous generation.

    This reminds of the statement.The issue of shaving is one that is always paskened by Gedoley Haposkim & Gedoloy Am Haaratzim

  3. Shaving is actually never permitted al Pi the Zohar, The whole new [yes the last few years] of shaving on Lag Ba’omer is technicality pathetic as according to Reb Shimon it’s Asur.

  4. I believe it was the Satmar Rebbe zt”l that said about Mike Tress: “S’ iz du a yid un a bard, un a burd un a yid.”
    Let’s leave it up to everyone’s own spiritual business..

  5. (Shaving) Internet is actually never permitted as per ALL Gedolim of the previous generation. The (moderated) actually said that seeing a Yid who shaves, makes him want to puke.
    I dont think surfing the net and preaching to others about not shaving is what the gedolim had in mind!
