Rav Solveitchik thought it was obligatory for Torah scholars to shave during the Omer in order not to look disheveled. IIUC

@Yishai I'm not sure what the difference is between that and what I said, unless you tell me some authority who composed it. (I don't even know what a Chalos "liturgy" is, frankly.)

@Yishai I'm aware of its origin. My comment stands. "It is not just a saying commonly said in the Jewish community." What other status could it have?

@GershonGold If he has no Esek in Nistar then how does he know there is a deep secret convincing reason there?

comment Is “siman tov u'mazal tov” a halachically problematic phrase?
@Yishai That seems somewhat circular. It's part of the "extra" parts of Kiddush Levana which are certainly later and in all likelihood were written by people who had it in their vernacular at the time.
