Question

NAZIR 44 (Shmini Atzeres) - l'Iluy Nishmas Chaim Noach ben ha'Chaver Reb Yehudah (Kruskal). Dedicated by his son and family

SUMMARY

According to R. Yehudah a Kohen may become Tamei to the spine, skull, the Rov Binyan or Rov Minyan of his relative.
 
R. Yehoshua Ben Elisha and the four Zekenim hold that a Kohen may be Metamei to a relative only while he is completely intact. (1)
 
If a Nazir becomes Tamei to a Mes or if his hair is shaved he must recount the Nezirus. (2)
 
A Nazir may shave his head for a Mitzvah (if he is a Metzora) and he may become Tamei for a Mes Mitzvah.
 
A person who shaves the hair of a Nazir is punished with Malkus along with the Nazir.
 
A Nazir whose hair is shaved must recount thirty days because he must have a growth of hair at the time that he completes his Nezirus.
 
A Nazir Tamei must be sprinkled on from the Parah Adumah on the third and seventh day, shave his hair on the seventh and bring his Korbanos on the eighth.
 
R. Akiva says that even if the Nazir does not shave until the eighth day he may bring his Korbanos on that day. (3)
 
If a Metzora does not shave until the eighth day he may not bring his Korbanos until the ninth day.
 
If the Nazir did not Tovel until the eighth day he may not bring his Korbanos until the ninth day.
 
A Zav may not bring his Korbanos on the eighth day if he did not Tovel on the seventh day.

A BIT MORE

1. R. Yehoshua Ben Elisha and the four Zekenim disagree with R. Yehudah who holds that a Kohen may become Tamei to the spine, skull, the Rov Binyan or Rov Minyan of his relative.
 
2. If he becomes Tamei he must recount the entire Nezirus and if his hair is shaved he must recount thirty days.
 
3. R. Tarfon says that the Nazir may not bring his Korbanos until the next day.

BRIEF INSIGHT

SHAVING AFTER THE NEZIRUS
 
A Nazir whose hair is shaved must recount thirty days because he must have a growth of hair at the time that he completes his Nezirus. Once the Nazir completes his Nezirus if his hair is shaved he does not have to recount even if he has not yet brought his Korbanos. The proof is from the Mishnah because it does not say that shaving is more stringent than Tum'ah because a Tum'ah after the completion of the Nezirus does not necessitate a recount while shaving does. (RD"L)

QUICK HALACHAH

DELAYING THE TEVILAH
 
If a Nazir delays his Tevilah for many days he must Tovel and undergo He'erev Shemesh and after that he may bring his Korbanos the following day. (Rambam Hilchos Nezirus 6:13)
