Are Jews Allowed To Shave

The Tur (O.Ch. 581) quotes the Midrash :

"The Minhag of the world is when a person has a court case, he dresses in black ,wraps himself in black and grows his beard etc.

The Bnei Yisroel are different. They dress in white they wrap themselves in white  and shave their beards. ומגלחין זקנם)) )*

Mr. Edelstein a"h the barber in Bnei Brak said that R. E. Dessler zt"l took a haircut on Erev Rosh Hashana, Erev Yom Kippur & again on Erev Succos.


He probably took the first two haircuts , because of the Tur.
