Daily Zohar 3915
126. וְשָׁנִינוּ, לָמָּה כָּתוּב בְּתַעַר, וְלֹא בְמִסְפָּרַיִם? אֶלָּא, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁיַּעֲבֹר הַשֵּׂעָר בְּשָׁרְשׁוֹ וְיַעַבְרוּ מִמֶּנּוּ הַדִּינִים הַתַּחְתּוֹנִים מֵהִשְׁתַּלְשְׁלוּתָם. וּבִזְמַן שֶׁיֻּכְשְׁרוּ הַמַּעֲשִׂים לְמַטָּה, עָתִיד הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהַעֲבִיר לוֹ אֶת הַשֵּׂעָר הַזֶּה וּלְגַלֵּחַ אוֹתוֹ, כְּדֵי שֶׁלֹּא יִצְמַח וְיִרְבֶּה, שֶׁכָּתוּב כִּי יִמָּרֵט רֹאשׁוֹ.
127. אָמַר רַבִּי יִצְחָק, גָּדוֹל מִכָּל הַלְוִיִּם הָיָה קֹרַח, שֶׁעָשָׂה אוֹתוֹ הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְמַטָּה כְּמוֹ שֶׁלְּמַעְלָה, וְקָרָא לוֹ קֹרַח. מָתַי? בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁגִּלַּח בִּשְׁבִילוֹ אֶת הָאִישׁ הַזֶּה, שֶׁכָּתוּב קֵרֵחַ הוּא.

“וְכֹה תַעֲשֶׂה לָהֶם לְטַהֲרָם הַזֵּה עֲלֵיהֶם מֵי חַטָּאת וְהֶעֱבִירוּ תַעַר עַל כָּל בְּשָׂרָם וְכִבְּסוּ בִגְדֵיהֶם וְהִטֶּהָרוּ.”
“Thus you shall do to them to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purification on them, and let them shave all their body with a razor, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.”
The Zohar asks what is the way to cleanse them, and answers, it is like sprinkling water of purification on the ‘face’ of Ish איש of Zeir Anpin. The purification water is the Light that comes from the concealed wisdom of Keter of Arich Anpin that is also called ‘טל הבדולח’ ‘Crystal dew’ to join Binah that spreads the Light to the lower levels and purify them.
“וְזָרַקְתִּי עֲלֵיכֶם מַיִם טְהוֹרִים וּטְהַרְתֶּם מִכֹּל טֻמְאוֹתֵיכֶם וּמִכָּל גִּלּוּלֵיכֶם אֲטַהֵר אֶתְכֶם.”
“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.”
The prophecy tells that in the future, Chassadim from the supernal father and mother that are called pure waters, also, their pure air (אוירא דכיא), would purify all like the Levites wash their clothes (Numbers 8:7) with water that is Chessed. The purification and correction of איש Ish also with the Chassadim from the supernal level.
Why is it said that they need to shave their hair with a razor, and not scissors? He explains that when using a razor, the hair is removed from its roots to disconnect the lower judgments from their hold in his hair.
When the ways of the lower levels are upright, the Holy One Blessed be He will shave the hair off from its roots so it won’t grow and spread, as it is written.
“וְאִישׁ כִּי יִמָּרֵט רֹאשׁוֹ קֵרֵחַ הוּא טָהוֹר הוּא.”
“Now if a man (איש Ish) loses (plucked) the hair of his head, he is bald (קרח); he is clean.”
Rabbi Yitzchak refers to the above verse and said, Korach was the greatest of all Levites. The Holy One Blessed be He made him like the איש Ish above, and called him ‘קרח’, ‘Korach’, which means bald.
To remove the aspect of judgments from the Levites, they used a razor to uproot the source of judgments. Nowadays we are not allowed to use razors because unlike the Levites that served next to the priests in the Holy Temple, we need the hair that represents ‘pipes’ of Light that we need from the Left and the Right to balance with our positive actions.
