    Jews don’t get drunk. they get shrekker. I mean shikker. hic.

    #800008

    there’s no mitzva to drink at night, let alone to get drunk. since we jews generally regard getting drunk as repulsive, and there’s no mitzva at night, I dare suggest that it’s not a very good idea to get drunk purim night……

    I dare suggest you wouldn’t get drunk even if it was a mitzva, which means you just don’t care about mitzvos.

    I heard that you have to be drunk enough to not be able to calculate the gematria of Baruch Mordechai,Arror Haman in your head. I cant do that anyways when I’m not drunk.

    “I dare suggest you wouldn’t get drunk even if it was a mitzva, which means you just don’t care about mitzvos.”

    The reason why I said that “we Jews generally regard getting drunk as repulsive,” is because after the Rambam says that it’s healthy to drink diluted wine during a meal, he mentions that one should be careful not to get drunk, because “anyone who gets drunk is a sinner, is disgraced, and loses his wisdom. And if he gets inebriated in front of the unlearned, he causes a chillul Hashem.” Mishnah Torah, Hilchos Dei’os, 5:3.

    “”….you don’t care abut mitzvos.” That statement is based on your baseless assumption that I wouldn’t drink if it were a mitzva. I actually do care about mitzvos. Now that you mentioned it, though, I actually cannot drink, despite the mitzva. This is because I am dangerously allergic to any alcohol, no matter how minute the amount. Therefore, if i would drink even a revi’is, I would be putting my life in significant danger, and last time I checked, drinking “ad d’lo yada” is not “yehareg v’al ya’avor.”

    Getting drunk when it’s not a mitzva is a serious issur. (see above Rambam.) The Mishna Berura quotes the Ramo, who says that one can be yotzei the mitzvah by drinking a little more than usual, and then going to sleep. The Mishna Berura says this is “ra’ui la’asos!” the proper way to do it.

    The Beis HaLevi was also noheig like that.

    You want to be more machmir than the Chofetz Chaim??

    Very good. But start with Lashon Hara.

    dangerously allergic to alcohol? maybe emotionally. but you got yourself into this mess so basicly at the end of the day you wouldn’t drink even if YOU had a mitzva to.

    oy vey, there’s a big difference between falling asleep and going to sleep. With the first you are Yotze Ad Delo Yada, with the latter you aren’t.

    Bar Shattya said: “dangerously allergic to alcohol? maybe emotionally. but you got yourself into this mess so basicly at the end of the day you wouldn’t drink even if YOU had a mitzva to.”

    Incorrect. I’m physically allergic to alcohol. I don’t know what “mess” you’re talking about. And I WOULD drink if I had a mitzva to. (Because it’s a mitzva. Jews are supposed to do mitzvos, and I’m Jewish. So I do mitzvos.)

    “She” is not winding him up. “He” is in fact winding him up.

    actually,

    if anyone is interested girls are b’davka not allowed to get drunk

    (various sources)

    also the gemara says chayav INISH (male) livisumei

    HaLeiVi said: “oy vey, there’s a big difference between falling asleep and going to sleep. With the first you are Yotze Ad Delo Yada, with the latter you aren’t.”

    The Ramo says “veyoshein.” I don’t know if that means going to sleep or falling asleep, but I do know that the Beis “HaLeiVi” was noheg to actually force himself to go to sleep.

    I like this thread.

    and I still stand by my earlier statement. i don’t think oy vey would get drunk even if it was a mitzva and even if oy vey wasn’t allergic to alchohol.

    Besides, we’re all alergic to alchohol. It is a toxin.

    Sure he’d force himself — by drinking wine!

    Coffee, I don’t disagree with your point, but that Inish thing is a poor excuse.

    popa said: “and I still stand by my earlier statement. i don’t think oy vey would get drunk even if it was a mitzva and even if oy vey wasn’t allergic to alchohol.”

    Please give a decent reason why you think that. I am insulted by your accusation which clearly indicates that you think I don’t care about mitzvos.

    “Besides, we’re all alergic to alchohol. It is a toxin.”

    I’m dangerously allergic, to the extent that if I have an ounce of light wine – on a full stomach – I could wind up in a hospital bed.

    Because all the anti-drinkers I know don’t drink even by the seudah, when it definitely is a mitzva.

    And they rarely do any of the tricks discussed by the acharonim to avoid it either. (the sleeping thing)

    I’m not an anti-drinker, I’m an anti-DRUNKer. So was the Rambam, but he cared about mitzvos as well. Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky said, “It’s an aveira to get drunk on Purim.” Rav Mordechai Willig: “The Mishna Berura says, “Vechein ra’ui la’asos!” Don’t get drunk! We’re Mishna Berura yidden!”

    Drinking is definitely a mitzva. Getting drunk is not. By the way, I don’t care what “all of the” anti-drinkers do. I am an individual, and if I were able, I would follow the Mishna Berura’s suggestion.

    oy vey kids these days: sorry for guessing your gender incorrectly. I was not sure but I figured (a) its more of a feminine name that you have chosen, and (b) I KNEW that while a woman will not mind to be suspected of being a man, no man can remain silent if accused of being a woman. So I twice made reference to you being of the Bina Yeseira gender, and I stood back and waited to see what would happen.

    Thank you for proving my point!!

    “You want to be more machmir than the Chofetz Chaim?”

    Considering that the Shulchan Aruch is, you wouldn’t be in bad company.

    #800041

    mw13 said: “”You want to be more machmir than the Chofetz Chaim?”

    Considering that the Shulchan Aruch is, you wouldn’t be in bad company.”

    Do you say “hanosein layo’eif koach?” The Shulchan Aruch says you shouldn’t. If you pick and choose different opinions for different things,(the ones that are most convenient for you), you’ll end up with a big mess of a Judaism. That’s why we follow the contemporary poskim what to do. The Mishna Berura says drink a little and go to sleep. Sefaradi? Rav Ovadiah Yossef says drink a revi’is. Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky says it’s an aveirah to get drunk on Purim. (I heard that from a very reliable close relative of his.) Rav Mordechai Willig says not to get drunk. Rav Shraga Feivel Zimmerman, Rav Moshe Tendler, etc. The list goes on and on.

    More and more rabbonim are starting to come out against getting drunk on Purim. In 2008, the Yated Ne’eman printed a statement from the Mo’etzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisroel, condemning giving drinks to bochurim, especially drinks other than wine, (for which there is NO MITZVA), and signed by 47 rabbonim.

    If your rav says that you should get drunk, then go right ahead. But you can’t pick and choose opinions for yourself.

    OVKTD:

    “Do you say “hanosein layo’eif koach?” The Shulchan Aruch says you shouldn’t.”

    Come on, there things the Mishna Berura says that we don’t follow too.

    “If you pick and choose different opinions for different things,(the ones that are most convenient for you), you’ll end up with a big mess of a Judaism.”

    True. All I was pointing out is that don’t go all “how can you possibly be more machmir than the Chofetz Chaim”, there are plenty of prominent poskim that are indeed machmir in this case.

    “More and more rabbonim are starting to come out against getting drunk on Purim. In 2008, the Yated Ne’eman printed a statement from the Mo’etzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisroel, condemning giving drinks to bochurim, especially drinks other than wine, (for which there is NO MITZVA), and signed by 47 rabbonim.”

    Huh? Coming out against giving drinks to minors is a far cry from saying nobody should get drunk on Purim.

    “If your rav says that you should get drunk, then go right ahead.”

    Actually, my Rov spends Purim in his dining room completely and thoroughly stoned. He also holds that the mitzva of getting drunk is a din in simchas ha’yom not the seudah, so he holds one should be drunk all day. I kid you not. However, obviously most others do not hold like this.

    BTW, I have no problem with people who follow their Rov and do not get drunk on Purim. (Though I have yet to hear of a Possek who does not say to drink at least some wine, so I’m not sure what the people who have a completely dry Purim rely on.) My problem is with people who decide that everybody who does get drunk is doing the biggest aveira in the world and go all hysterical about how bad it is, how there’s no mekur, etc. That’s simply not true. Many prominent Poskim hold it is a chiyuv to get completely stoned, and those who do so have more than enough to rely on.

    That is not at all pashut. It is not the pashtus of the shulchan oruch or the gemara. Even if some acharonim say that, you can’t claim that so definitely.

    PBA, I believe Rashi on the Gemora says that the Mitzva is only with wine.

    Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l held like that, and also the 47 rabbonim who signed the proclamation in 2008 held like that.

    mw13 said: “Huh? Coming out against giving drinks to minors is a far cry from saying nobody should get drunk on Purim.”

    That’s true. What I meant was that even if it’s okay to get mamash drunk, (which MANY gedolei haposkim are VERY against), there are still restrictions. Here is part of the text of the Agudah’s statement:

    1. The mitzva of “Chayav Adam l’v’sumet b’Purya…” is only with wine as it is stated in Chayei Adam (155:30) and Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (142:6). Free use of whiskey and other alcoholic beverages is entirely inappropriate and contrary to da’as Chachomim.

    2. Ba’alei Batim should not serve any alcoholic beverages, including wine, to groups of bochurim visiting their homes.

    3. Those who drive under the influence of alcohol not only endanger themselves but all their passengers and other members of the public. Drivers must therefore not consume any alcoholic beverages, including wine, and must take extra care to drive safely, observing all applicable laws and safety procedures.

    4. Nobody should enter a car if there is reason to believe that the driver is under the influence of alcohol, and all reasonable steps should be taken to prevent such an individual from driving.

    And as a side point, “livsumei” doesn’t mean to smell like cigarette smoke.
