Shpiels & Schnapps: A pre-Purim discussion on the custom of drinking
Tuesday, February 12, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (IST)
New York, NY
Join Pardes' Yaffa Epstein for coffee and a discussion on "Pour me another" - The famous tale of the Murderous Purim Seudah (Festive meal). Pick up coffee upstairs and join us downstairs for pastries! All Masa alumni are invited but space is limited.
Here's a little bit more on the discussion topic:
"Pour me another" - The famous tale of the Murderous Purim Seudah (Festive meal)
The Talmud tells a story of two Rabbis who spent Purim Seudah (Festive meal) together, and the dangerous consequences of their drinking. In this session, we will attempt to read the story in multiple ways, and and gain an understanding of what lessons the Talmud is trying to impart.
