Se raser pendant le Omer pour raison professionnelle.
Question: Chalom, je suis vendeur dans un magasin qui se trouve à Neuilly, aussi j'ai l'habitude de laisser une barbe de 3 jours, et même sur cela mon patron m'a fait des remarques. Baroukh Achem, il a arrêté de me faire des remarques à ce sujet. Maintenant, que c'est le Omer et que je dois retourner travailler après les fêtes, je crains qu'il ne soit pas d'accord que je laisse la barbe jusqu'à Lag Baomer. Alors, je voulais savoir si c'est permis de se raser dans un cas pareil. Merci d'avance pour votre réponse.
