This year so easy to fulfill:- By listening to the State of the Union address by President Donald Trump, on the very 1st evening of Adar hoRischon, by the best president we have ever had.February 5, 2019 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1674542
CA do you drink wine every day of adar?February 5, 2019 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #1674572
I save my tolerance (or lack thereof) for PurimFebruary 5, 2019 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1674575

My husband makes a siyum every day. Some days he makes a siyum of a mesechta and other days he makes a a siyum of Jonny Walker. Since women are also mechuyiv in this halacha of “Mishenichnas adar marbin besimcha” – I join him!February 5, 2019 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #1674621
why not a siyum on both every day?
too much to learn?
or too much to drink?
or both?February 5, 2019 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1674652
When we go on vacation, my husband always brings along 10 bottles of scotch – because a Yid needs to always have a minyan. I asked him once, why 10 bottles, isn’t 9 bottles plus you you a minyan? He patiently expkined that the 10 bottles are the minyan and he is the bais hamedrash in which the minyan enters. Be b’simcha tomid. Ad dilo yada!February 5, 2019 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #1674642

No because it’s only משנכנס not משיצא which is after PurimFebruary 5, 2019 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #1674695midwesternerParticipant
There are those who say the Mishenichnas Adar we increase the simcha. And we continue to increase until Rosh Chodesh Av, when we are mema’et just a little bit. Let’s see what he looks like on 29 Tammuz!!February 5, 2019 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #1674761

Hopefully, this year, we will see a bit less of the mindless equivalence of “Simcha” with “inebriation” . All the leaders of Hatazalah organizations here and in EY have made clear that the “marbin” some invoke to drink excessively in the days leading up to Purim and especially on Purim itself sets up tragic outcomes. Fortunately, more rabbonim each year take clear and unequivocal stands against the “adsheloyadah syndrome” and admonish their talmidim to strictly limit their intake. Lets hope this year there will be more responsibility exercised along with Simcha machers.February 6, 2019 12:15 am at 12:15 am #1674818HaimyParticipant
The consensus among the poskim is that this din only applies to Adar sheini. Let’s be patient.February 6, 2019 1:36 am at 1:36 am #1674833Uncle BenParticipant
Haimy; No need to wait, the Rema writes clearly in the last siman of Orach Chaim, “vetov lev misheh tomid”.February 6, 2019 1:37 am at 1:37 am #1674821Uncle BenParticipant
KatanHadorah; Thanks for the comical grandmother on the rocking chair finger wagging no drinking speech. That’ll really scare the silly teenagers out of their mindlessness.February 6, 2019 9:42 am at 9:42 am #1674906

Uncle Benny…you are right….more important to share jokes about excessive drinking than to highlight efforts of rabboniim to curtail some of the craziness. I’m sure you and yours have a SAFE purim since you don’t see any value in “finger wagging”…..No one is suggesting going “dry” on Purim and I’m certain some of our usual poskim would shriek its apikorsus to even suggest some limitations. I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on responsible drinking, but of course excluding any strategy involving your digits…February 6, 2019 12:18 pm at 12:18 pm #1675080
Buy the teenagers alcohol. They can’t rebel if you cooperate.February 6, 2019 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #1675093
It is ossur and an aveira to waste liquor on teenagers. Baal tashchis!! Keep the liquor for the adults that appreciate it (and need it to cope with the teenagers).February 6, 2019 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #1675115
Adults shouldn’t be allowed to drink because they can drive.February 6, 2019 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm #1675101
Haimy: Did you not know that “shloshim yom kodem ha’chag” one must begin to be osek in the halochos of the chag? Thirty days before Adar one must begin being osek in “mishenichnas Adar…”!!February 6, 2019 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1675128
RebYid: Following your logic, adults shouldn’t be allowed to have knives because they can injure someone…but guess what? Adults CAN have knives, because presumably, they will act responsibly and not hurt anyone with the knives…drinking too, when one begins to drink, if he needs transportation, there is a designated driver or uber or the keys are given to someone else …but let’s continue with your logic: Adults that do not (or can not) drive CAN drink without restrictions?!!February 6, 2019 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1675136
Yes. In order to buy alcohol, one should have to show a non-driver’s ID.February 6, 2019 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #1675141
Knives are different because they are protected under the 2nd amendment, and that makes them good. Everyone should have several.February 6, 2019 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #1675175Reb EliezerParticipant
There is a shaila in Ksav Sofer if we should make a sudah on Purim Katan. The Shulchan Aruch starts with with שויתי ה’ לנגדי תמיד that is יראה fear, and it finishes with טוב לב משתה תמיד that is אהבה love. This is the meaning of שני תמידים כהלכתם referring to the Shulchan Aruch above. So, if you have a kind heart willing also to share your meal, by giving משלח מנות then you can also have a sudah.February 6, 2019 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #1675172
Apparently, all of the yiddeshe lunar calendars distributed by the mosdos in their annual fundraising appeals were wrong and rosh chodesh adar rishon really began at noon on January 20, 2017 since there is now substantial evidence showing that a large portion of the frumme tzibur began marbin b’simcha at that hour and have exceeded any possible inyan of adsheloyadah since that time judging by their collective political and social commentary posted on discussion blogs, social media etc. The actual duration of such such an “extended” leap month (measured in years under Gregorian Calenar standards) is unknown.
