Purim Drives You to Drink

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Purim is probably the most absurd event in the Jewish calendar—a tale of pimping and drunkenness, assimilation and improbability. The book on which it’s based hardly sounds biblical, God does not get a mention, and the hero and heroine are not really people we would want to recommend to our children. So, given its implausibility what, if anything, can it teach us?
