Chapter 3, Mishna 1
Who may cut his hair, shave and launder clothes during chol hamoed, the intermediate days of the Festival? These folks are the exception to the rule. Why did the Sages make a stringent rule for the majority? There are two prayers for finding lost objects. May we cut a baby’s hair on chol hamoed? Does a rabbinic court judge cases on chol hamoed? What is the connection to the laws of ostracism and mourning?
