This shall be the teaching…on the day he becomes pure. He shall be brought to the priest In this verse the Zohar hears an echo of another verse, And you shall make poles for the altar…and its poles shall be brought through the rings…on the two sides of the altar. The Mei HaShiloach explains the connection between them. Spiritual healing only comes after we learn to reduce ourselves to the point that we can be “brought through the rings” that are attached to the altar. The rings remained fixed in their position and the poles were directed toward them, so too Judaism remains fixed and we direct ourselves toward it.
