Purim and other holidays
Tonight begins, or rather has already begun, the joyous holiday of Purim. This holiday commemorates the miraculous rescue of the Jews in the kingdom of Persia more than 2,400 years ago. Through the drawing of lots, King advisor Aman’s determined the 13th of Adar as the day of the murder of all the Jews of Persia. As you can see, none of this worked out, nor did it work out later, in 1953 – when another, modern-day Aman, was planning the same thing. It seems that someone in Heaven protect us….
Children love Purim most of all, as they become participants in carnival processions. Adults and children sew or buy colorful outfits and dress up as fairy tale characters. Besides the carnival processions and sweets, which are called “ears of Aman”, this holiday has a very good rule – on this day you must … a drink. And so many that you don’t be able to distinguish “Aman from Mordechai” …
Of course, I would never miss such a holiday, especially since it is written even in the Torah about getting drunk. For me tomorrow is associated with another event – on this day, on March 7, 2008 my website IsraBeer was created. Since then, 15 years have passed, IsraBeer has had ups and downs over the years, from a purely news site it has gradually turned into a place where I tell my readers about what I know and love. The site has always printed only articles written by me personally. Maybe that is what its readers like. It has never lost its style and identity, and I hope it stays that way for years to come.
IsraBeer website congratulates all beer lovers with a wonderful Purim holiday!
