Coplas Viejas

DESPUÉS de mucho, después de vagas leguas,confusos de dominios, inciertos de territorios,acompañado de pobres esperanzas y compañías infieles y desconfiados sueños,amo lo tenaz que aún sobrevive en mis ojos

A Jewish Boy’s First Haircut
at the Western Wall with Reb Gutman Locks on Mystical Paths
There is a tradition not to cut a Jewish boy’s hair until his 3rd birthday. The source is attributed to the Torah likening man to a tree in the field, and just as we do not shear the fruit of a tree for its first three years, so too, the custom is not to cut a boy’s hair until his third birthday.
There is a joyful celebration that accompanies the snipping off of some of his locks that is called the upsherin (Yiddish: shearing off). The day marks his moving from being a baby to being a young boy, and, most important, at this time his formal Torah education begins.

Just a note:  Not everyone follows this tradition.
