How do you explain not shaving during sefira?
I am not shaving (since the first day of Pesach) until Lag Baomer. I am not good at explaining why to people at work . Saying that the talmidim of R' Akiva died 2000 years ago doesn't really move anyone. Anyone have a good way of explaining this minhag to no-religious Jews or non-Jews?
