(Jews in Detroit, 1900's)
They may quite possibly be the most horrible look on a man. Especially on old men. The men pictured here are for illustration purposes only, no actual Sefirah beards are shown.
Truthfully I have nothing but great respect for those who refrain from shaving on Sefirah. I don't know if I, a מפונק of sorts, would be able to overcome that נסיון.
I have seen men who otherwise don't seem to be pinnacles of Yiras Shomayim go 5 weeks without shaving when they could easily get a full-fledged היתר because they "work in Manhattan and need to ride the train".
Hang in there guys, only 11 days until ל"ג בעומר
