After three weeks with no haircuts, and thus no upshernishen, Friday saw the return of the celebrations in full force, with 3 being celebrated just in 770.

The main zal of 770 was even more joyous than regular on Friday with at least 5 simchos being celebrated simultaneously.
Three of the celebrations were upshernishen, which resumed after a three-week hiatus.
During the three weeks between Shiva Asar B’tamuz and Tisha B’av, haircuts, and by extension upshernishen, are forbidden. As such, the nearly daily upsherinin held in 770 were noticeably absent.
On Friday morning, as the Three Weeks and Nine Days came to an end, the ‘upshernish season’ resumed, and with it came no less than 3 upshernishen being celebrated at the same time in three locations across 770’s main zal.
The morning also saw 2 bar mitzvahs being celebrated, one of the son of Oholei Torah mashpia Rabbi Levi Matusof, grandson of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gluckowsky, rov of the Chabad community in Rechovot, Eretz Yisroel.
The many simchos made for a day even more joyous than regular in 770.
