According to the Jewish law, it is not allowed to gather harvest from the trees in Israel in the first three years. Torah compares a man with a tree. That’s why it is forbidden to cut boy’s hair also during his first three years of life. The first haircut and the third birthday are celebrated at the same day with a very joyful and special birthday party.
On January 29th more than 150 guests came to the synagogue to celebrate with Rabbi Shimon Bergman and his wife Yael Opshernish of their youngest son Levi.
