Chapter 8, Mishna 1
Case of uncertainty in nazirus. Is it considered that one who rounds entire head rounds the corners?
If you’re doing purification of metzora, you need to shave entire head, but don’t start with the corners. Positive mitzvah overrides a prohibition We learn this from commandment of tzitzit. You shall not wear diverse kinds together but you can wear tzitzit with diverse kinds. Sky blue thread of ritual fringes, has to be made of wool, even on a linen garment. Positive mitzvah does not override negative and positive commandments combined, EXCEPT in case of nazir who became a metzorah.
Men not permitted to shave certain parts of body because it’s like putting on a women’s garment.
