In connection with 14 Kislev, the 90th anniversary of the Rebbe’s wedding, a new Hebrew publication is being prepared for release, entitled: “Maintaining a Full Beard: Help or Hindrance to Shidduchim and Sholom Bayis?”
This 32 page booklet is an expansion of a chapter on the topic which appears in only 4 pages in the sefer Hadras Ponim Zokon (part II chapter 16).
Represented in this treatise are the opinions of the leading Litvish gedolim such as the Chofetz Chaim, the Chazon Ish and Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Sephardic chachamim such as the Baba Sali, and extensive quotations from the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Also included are stories related to the topic of the beard and shidduchim, including stories about the Chofetz Chaim, the Chazon Ish, the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Rav Chaim Kanievsky.
The publication may be viewed in its entirety by clicking here (individual sections may be accessed by clicking the section name in the table of contents,) and will be printed with a full-color cover design, and widely disseminated when adequate sponsorships have been identified.
