Is Contact Necessary In The Snatch?

Tarang Asks: Wanted to ask you about the "explosion phase" of the snatch. Does one need to hit/contact the bar at the end of the pull or just shrug up? I been trying to correct my pull under. A hit kind of forces the bar forward for me while just a shrug up might not get it high enough.
