Alcohol and Purim–How Much is Enough?

We recently sent an email out to our customers reminding them of the 3 mitzvot we are to do for Purim. Know what they are?

1) Read the megillah, from start to finish

2) Get drunk

3) Send gifts of food and wine

Rightfully so, one of our customers quickly responded letting us know that encouraging readers to “Get drunk” without any sort of explanation was not responsible on our part. We quickly made sure to qualify this with the inclusion of “with safety and moderation.”

Our friends at My Jewish Learning have posted a great article that examines the source of Purim drinking and just how much is enough. It’s an interesting read, check it out.

Happy Purim and bottom’s up–within reason!
