A new publication has just been released, titled (in English translation): “Maintaining a Full Beard: Help or Hindrance to Financial Prosperity?”
Citing the great luminaries of the various communities, both Litvish (e.g., the Chofetz Chaim), Sephardic (e.g., the Baba Sali) and Chassidic (e.g., the Kedushas Yom Tov), and quoting extensively from the Rebbe, this work authoritatively demonstrates that “If one lets his beard grow…he can certainly expect that Hashem will grant him a fitting marriage partner…Hashem will provide them with sustenance; they will merit to raise upright children; and he will experience a good life with the wife Hashem has designated for him” (the Chofetz Chaim).
Furthermore, “since Hashem revealed in His holy Torah… that the beard represents the Thirteen Adornments of the Sublime Beard, the paths of mercy that convey all forms of influence…it is impossible that an increase in blessing will be the reason to withhold one’s livelihood, Heaven forbid” (the Rebbe).
Moreover, “the thirteen fixtures of the beard, which correspond to the thirteen pathways of Divine Mercy…are the channels for one’s livelihood,” and, “as Chazal state, growing a beard draws down Hashem’s blessings to the entire family, materially and spiritually” (the Rebbe).
