8:15 PM — 10:00 PM
2850 Quebec Street, NW
Washington, DC 20008 United States
How can we best prepare for the upcoming Purim holiday, with its well-known indulgences? By studying texts about drinking, of course! Starting with the Megillah we’ll learn merry and sober texts on the dangers of drinking. How much to drink on Purim? As much as King Ahasuerus? Themes will include wine’s perils and prohibitions and its association with moral degeneration, assimilation, idolatry, stereotyping, irreverence and joy.
Single session: JSC, Adas members $15, others $20
Together with Part II (Passover): JSC, Adas members $25, others $35
