VideoJew gets shaved
For the record, I didn't grow a beard for this video. I did it for God.
But in keeping the Omer tradition, I realized this was a tremendous opportunity to educate the world about the promises and immense potential of a truly rewarding Lag B'Omer.
But before I really develop that thought, here's some background on the Omer
While the majority of Lag B'Omer could be spent at parties, weddings or concerts, when you¹ve been growing hair on your face for over a month, its removal becomes the utmost priority.
As you can see from the video, I'm a new person without all the hair. I feel kempt, organized and in control.
But as happy as I am that its gone, I've never missed something so much in my life, from the way it itched during 80% of my day, to the way it always saved foot particles for a mid-day snack. It's gone now, but I still have another 16 days to nurture its second coming.
Until then, Happy Lag B'omer!
