  1. 1 – put up the English translation
    2 – Get a few American Roshei Yeshiva and Menahalim to READ this to their Talmidim and learn it with them
    3 – publish it in all of the local and national publications
    4 – realize that sadly those who could care less will not care a bit about this. They will knock it and bash it. Still, there are so so many more people who are Lshem Shomayim and they will adhere to the Divrei Chachomim.
    5 – to all who say there are 2 sides. There are no 2 sides here. There is no side anywhere that says drinking to the point of disgusting is permissible
    6 – remember it’s wine only!!!!

  2. Theres no childish here. I have no idea why people think they need to get wasted on Purim. The Rem”a says just drink a little more. Us Ashkenazim do everything like the Rem”a. And the Mishna Berura agrees. I’m lost when I see people rolling around in the street.
    Simchas Purim !!

  3. Can we get a Psak from some Lakewood Rabanim? I’m sure these are all big Talmidei Chachamim but not much name recognition there for most Lakewooders. Maybe our Rabanim don’t all agree with this Psak which would give us no obligation to follow it.
    Yes, us Ashkenazim do hold like the Rama where he argues with the Shulchan Aruch but the Mishna Berura and many later Poskim don’t seem to be going with that.
    Obviously staying safe and keeping all 613 Mitzvos supersedes anything else-even on Purim; so if one will put himself into a Sakana or do an Aveira because he drank, he obviously shouldn’t drink that much.
