Michael explains the spiritual significance of the first haircut during Lag ba’Omer, and the importance of being in a state of joy and happiness to fully receive the assistance of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.
The thirty-third day of the Omer is the day when kabbalist Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, left this physical reality. On this day we can connect with the Light that Rav Shimon revealed throughout his life and the Light of the Zohar, which embodies that light of immortality that was lost on Mount Sinai.
