Wearing Shorts and Short Sleeves

Is a male permitted to wear short pants and short sleeves in the summer?

Thank You


It is permitted to wear shorts and short sleeves in places where this is normal (most places, today).

One should not daven in shorts, but one may daven in short sleeves provided that one would present himself to a dignified person dressed in short sleeves.

Sources: Concerning davening in shorts, see: Mishnah Berurah 91:12-13; Halichos Shlomo Tefilla 2:15; and others; see also Yechaveh Daas 4:8; Hatefilla Vehilchoseha 5:4; Az Nidberu 2:55:4.
