The Rebbe's Advice #599 - MOSHE AND ARON HAD BEARDS

osted Tuesday, Apr 5 2011 10:01pm in Chabad News, Rebbe's Advice

In memory of Rabbi Gavriel & Rebbetzin Rivkah Holtzberg HYD - Shluchim to Mumbai, India

I once asked someone who desired to shave his beard, why is it that in all pictures of Moshe and Aron drawn by artists, they always have beards. Regardless of the artist being a Jew or a non-Jew, one thing they always draw is a beard.

This fellow was an honest person, and he responded that it was indeed a good point. In fact, whenever he draws for himself a picture of a G-d fearing Jew, he draws him with a long beard, without it being trimmed at all.

Igros Kodesh volume 22, p. 492
