I feel like the average nowadays is $20-$25 and for a good cut $30+. My guy consistently went up about $2 every year.
Maybe it's time to switch Professions?  ;)
In Lakewood the going rate is $14, great cuts (i.e Mr. Clipper- and I have absolutely no connection to them)

Caplan Cuts is $16. I was happy with them.


$25-$30 does sound expensive. That sounds like covid private appointment with sanitizing between haircuts pricing.

When you get married do you tip the person officiating the wedding?

Highly culturally dependent, among Orthodox Jewish circles. In some places it is considered one of the standard roles of a synagogue Rabbi to officiate at congregant weddings, and there is a standard amount given (which is as much a part of the Rabbi's salary as it is a "tip"). It would be a big breach to have an outsider officiate in those circles. In other circles, it is a big honor given to the rabbi most influential in the groom's life, or a reverted relative. It would be considered quite rude and insulting to give a tip or payment in those circles.

The 'tip' is usually in the form of a donation to the congregational rabbi's discretionary fund which is spent on charity, communal projects, etc. The money is very rarely kept as income unless the couple do not affiliate with a congregation and thus don't pay dues. In the case of an unaffiliated couple, there's no 'tip'. The officiant and couple agree on a set fee/honorarium. I've seen a range of $500-$1500 depending on the complexity of the event and the couple's means.

Come to think of it, I don't recall the last time I had a $900 dinner  :D
Guess you never went with 7 people to a steakhouse.
