  • "Purim: To Drink or Not To Drink, To Bow or Not to Bow"
    Shabbat, Mar 11th 12:00p to 1:00p
    The Talmud says that Jews must get drunk on Purim to extent that they cannot tell the difference between Haman and Mordechai. Is this really a commandment? We tell our kids in Religious School that Mordechai refused to bow to Haman because Jews bow only to God. Is this really correct? Come and find out!
