Jewish Drinking Show: Purim Drunkenness

With Purim fast approaching, enjoy the next part of the Jewish drinking show’s Purim Series. This week, Rabbi Drew is joined by Rabbi David Fried to discuss Purim Drunkenness.

Drinking on Purim is a curiously interesting topic of discussion. With the Talmudic statement to get drunk on Purim; how did the medieval Jewish legal authorities deal with this matter?

Rabbi Fried currently serves as part of the Judaic Studies faculty at Hebrew High School of New England and graduated from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School.
