comment Is there “Torah Inerrancy”?
@DoubleAA The Torah may have presented a view that people believed at that time. While that particular opinion turned out to be false, it is not a factual error on the part of the Torah - it is factually correct that this was the view at the time.

I didn't mean to say it was for sure a duplicate (nor did I vote to close it as such), just that it is very much related.

comment Ari Zal and Sefira
You are claiming that this stringency further extends to all the practices of mourning, which is what I am taking issue with. I have no problem saying that the Arizal maintained that mourning must be observed throughout the 49 days of Sefira, but that is a separate thing from his opposition to haircuts.

@RabbiMichaelTzadok As I explained in my answer, if it was related to mourning it would not apply on Lag Beomer when according to the Arizal we do not observe any customs of mourning.

comment Ari Zal and Sefira
Here, from the Minchas Elazar (4:60): "Even though the Arizal forbade haircuts on Lag B'Omer, this is only for adults.. for the Arizal himself brought his son to Meron on Lag B'Omer for a haircut.."
