Okay, I'm kidding, obviously this is a picture of the Grateful Dead! It's tabbo to take photos in the synagogue on the Sabbath. (This is probably the one time I've regretted that...) But there was a kid having his bar mitzvah this morning, and his hair is mid-back length. As is his father's, albeit with a somewhat receding hairline. But I know the kid and his father, they attend regularly. What I wasn't ready for was that the kids also has an older, and a younger, brother both with hair even longer than him. (The boy's mother and younger sister also sport some copious hair.) But what REALLY made me feel at home was that there were a number of male friends of the boy AND of his parents, all with some serious long hair, visiting for the occasion.
Like most of you, I don't mind standing out a bit. I don't wear long hair specifically to be different, more in spite of being different. But this morning, to be surrounded by long-haired men and boys, was kind of refreshing!
Best to all...
