Podcast: Is it Really Mitzvah to Drink on Purim?


An often repeated quote from the famous Talmudic sage Rava discusses drinking on the holiday of Purim. However getting drunk may not be the most derech eretz thing to do. Rabbi Elan Adler, the host of Arutz Sheva's Derech Eretz Hour discusses humble and fun ways to celebrate the Purim holiday including health-conscious mishloach manot [holiday gift baskets] and appropriate costumes. Purim is both a fun time but also one of reflection on the hidden miracle of Esther and Mordechai. For the full podcast download the Derech Eretz Hour by clicking here
