Torah Trivia-Nusach Sefard

Nusach Sefard doesn’t tolerate people who do this. People who do so are not worthy

to daven Nusach Sefard. ??????


 SILK BEKESHES

Shu”t  Chasam Sofer  (O.Ch. 15b-16 ) The Shoel asks the Chasam Sofer , People
who wear woolen clothing, if  they are allowed to serve as a Shliach Tzibur. The reason for not
allowing, is because Nusach Sefard doesn’t tolerate people who wear woolen clothing. People
 who do so are not worthy to daven Nusach Sefard.
In Teshuvah # 15  the Ch. S. seems to ridicule this statement. He claims, even if the chumra comes
from not wanting to be nichshal in Shatnez, it doesn’t make sense to differentiate between
Nusach Ashkenaz and Sefard.
In Teshuva 16 , Although The Ch. S. still  disagrees with the Shoel , he  takes him more seriously,
 being the Yismach Moishe confirmed , the  disallowing  of a Shlaich Tzibbur who wears wool
 ( to daven Nusach Sefard).

Most Chasidic Rebbes and some Chasidim wear silk   Bekeshes for this reason . 

It is possible, this Minhag originated  by a *Gadol  who made  a statement, " people
 who daven Nusach Sefard don’t wear wool clothing". He was referring to Sefardim who reside
in warm countries.  All he   was   trying to say, was  a fact,  sefardim in warm climate
countries don’t wear wool.  (they have an advantage not to be nichshal in Shatnez). He never
 meant to say , davenening  Nusach Sefard requires one not to wear wool clothing.
