Beard Power


There's an article going around which claims that beards contain a lot of filth. Now a good Jewish beard is cleaned at least once a day before and after the daily dip in the mikva. Even still it is important to understand the root of the problem. The beard being the root of all of Heaven's bounty - livelihood and sustenance - as our Sages revealed that "bunay (children) chayay (life) umizonay (sustenance/livelihood) bimazal (in the beard, specifically the 8th and 13th sections of the beard) tuluy (are contingent)." Money, it is well known how filthy money is, both allegorically and in actuality, so it is no surprise that in money's root, from where it is channeled down, from the beard, there might be some filth found there. However the more we purify ourselves, our motives, and intentions, the more clean and holy our beards will be, and our money.
