Recently, much discussion regarding the topic of maintaining a full beard has appeared in numerous forums, in which many members of Anash expressed varied and often conflicting opinions and assumptions regarding this issue in general and the position of Lubavitch in particular.
Authoritative Responses to Common Misconceptions documents how the Rebbes of Lubavitch address the questions which concern many individuals regarding the importance of the beard and the position of Torah concerning cutting the beard.
Since writers in various forums have made assertions about what non-Chassidic (“Litvish” and “Sephardic”) authorities have said about maintaining a beard and what the position of Breslov might be, documentation in response to those inquiries is also included.
It is hoped that publication of this booklet will serve to help provide clarification and alleviate confusion concerning this issue.
