: So I posted here a few months back, I'm living in Israel now. And I've found that long-haired men are few and far between, this in contrast to my observation only a year before I came as an immigrant, my last visit in December 15-January 16. I couldn't believe things had changed so much in just a year. But then look what I found when I went to synagogue this morning...
My how things have changed. I had my Bar Mitzvah in 1967,
three years after starting to grow my hair. My mom was ok with it, the rabbi was not, but I persisted and kept it long.
I lived in Wisconsin at the time, there were three of us boys in the synagogue who had long hair, the rabbi was not happy.
