Nusach Sefard & wool suits


CLICK HERE FOR THE Alain Dupetit 100% Wool Men's Two Button Suit 46L Navy-Pinstripe

Shu”t  Chasam Sofer  (O.Ch. 15b-16 ) The Shoel asks the Chasam Sofer about People
who wear woolen clothing if  they are allowed to serve as a Shliach Tzibur. 

The Shoel heard that Nusach Sefard doesn’t tolerate people who wear woolen clothing.
People who do so (wear wool)  are not worthy to daven Nusach Sefard.

In Teshuvah # 15  the Ch. S.  ridicules this statement. He says even if the chumra comes
from not wanting to be nichshal in Shatnez, it doesn’t make sense to differentiate between
Nusach Ashkenaz and Sefard.

In Teshuva 16 , Although The Chasam Sofer still  disagrees with the Shoel , he  treats the Shoel more
respectfully, being the Yismach Moishe confirmed , the  disallowing  of a Shaliach Tzibbur who  wears wool ( to daven Nusach Sefard). 

Perhaps we can say this statement originated  by a Gadol  who might have said, " people
 who daven Nusach Sefard don’t wear wool clothing". He was referring to Sefardim who reside
in warm countries.  

All he   was   trying to say, was  a fact,  Sefardim being they live in warm climate
countries don’t wear wool.  ( by doing so they are not  nichshal in Shatnez). He never
 meant to say , davening  Nusach Sefard requires one not to wear wool clothing.

Tiskabal,Yehai Shlomo & Oseh Sholom were added
on to the Kaddish, when ending, the Tefillah it should

other, and if  there is Ch"v Machlokes, Hashem should

The Chasam Sofer Reason For The Yom Tov Of Tu Baav

כתיבה וחתימה טובה*


The Gemoro (Moed Katan 9a) says on the Pasuk
(Melochim 1:8:64) וילכו לאהליהם שמחים וטובי לב –
לאהליהם  
They came home and their wives were Tehoros.
 וטובי לב 
They all became pregnant with a Ben Zochor
על כל הטובה 
They were forgiven for eating on Yom Kippur


 The last person to reach his home in Nehar Peros was
on the 7th of Cheshvan (Ta’anis10a)

If you count from the  7th of Cheshvan, 271 days of
pregnancy (Nidah 38a) they will have given birth on the
15th of Av which was their sign of Kaparah.


According to the Chasam Sofer, perhaps we can add an
additional Simcha on Tu B’av.
They all had boys and realized that in a few years from
then there won’t be any more a  Shidduch crisis.
