Rabbi: Electric razors not kosher
Posted by Mr DoctorE on August 20, 2012
The rabbis, whose convention marked the beginning of the yeshiva students’ summer break, have prohibited the use of electric shaving machines because the gadgets pull out hair by its roots, which is considered a violation of Jewish law.
The religious leaders decided that any store that chooses to sells the non-kosher electric razors would be required to refund the buyers’ money.
Following the decision, Kiryat Sefer Rabbi even ventured to send out a list of prohibited haircuts to barbershops across town.
