Haircuts and Shaving During Hol Hamoed

Haircuts and Shaving During Hol Hamoed
Day: Sunday
Date: October 23, 2016
Parshat: Vezot Haberacha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 531-2

It is forbidden for men and women over Bar/Bat Mitzvah to get haircuts during Hol Hamoed. Men may not shave or trim their beards either. However, one may trim his mustache even if it doesn't get in the way of his food. One may brush or comb his hair even though some hairs will fall out by doing so. Likewise, one may also cut his nails during Hol Hamoed. Ashkenazim are more strict and do not cut their nails during Hol Hamoed

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Visit us online at
