  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

For romantic purposes that is...

Consider another point the article makes:

but having a beard apparently commands respect from other males. So you could see yourself getting ahead at work or even being treated better by your peers. f you want to try and advance your career, put down the razor and let that bad boy grow for the next three months. You’ll be boss in no time!

so all the lubavitchers afraid they'll fail a job interview for having a beard....you may just have to "brush up" on your interview skills.

I never really understood why there's minhag (amongst non-chabad) that Rabbanim grow a beard. It's not an halachic chumra, so why?
Can someone enlighten me?

The gemarah says: "hadras panim zuken".
And the Gemarah says in Sanhedrin that the people sitting in beis din hagodal were only people with a hadras panim.
Seems like from there it was taken that chusheva people grow their beards.

So it's like wearing a suit to maintain respectable appearance? Interesting.

Don't know of any suits that draw down yud gimmel midos ha'rachamim for extra parnassah...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Is that a Purim joke?

No. I am asking about Rabbis who are not Chassidsh or chabad. The entire halchic issue with shabing pretains only to the insturment used. They still dont shave at all.

There is solid basis in Halacha to be Machmir. Read up on this in Encyclopedia Talmudis Volume 11 Column 126.
