Hello, I hope I’m not asking a question that has been already answered. Is a single girl of marriagable age allowed to shave during sefirah? Specifically legs. Thank you very much.


The custom to not cut hair during sefira, seems to include body hair, as with other places where haircuts are forbidden [such as the 9 days]. However, the inclusion of women in this custom is questionable, and as such when there is discomfort, embarrassment or some other real need, a woman may remove body hair during sefira.
