A Boy Becomes a Man

Mazel tov to Dixie Yid Jr. on his Upsherin earlier this week! May you grow up to Torah, Chupah, Ma'asim Tovim and Yiras Shamayim!

Mazel Tov, Mazel Tov, Mazel Tov.
May he grow up to be a Tzaddik like his Tatty. No, may he grow up to be an even greater Tzaddik than his Tatty!

Anon #1,

Amen, and thank you for your super kind words! And v'chein l'mar!

Anon #2,

Perhaps I will post a translation from the introduction to the sefer Nitei Gavriel, on the halachos and minhagim of "Upsherin". Keep your eyes peeled!
