The Purim Meal

The Purim Meal
Day: Wednesday
Date: March 12, 2014
Parshat: Tzav, Zachor
Source: Yalkut Yosef: 695

Everyone is required to have a meal during the daytime on Purim. If one had the meal at night he must have another one during the daytime. During the meal it is good to sing praises and zemirot to Hashem. It is good to wash and have bread as part of the Purim meal. One should also have meat as part of the seudah if he can afford it, otherwise he should at least have chicken.  Men are required to drink wine on Purim to get themselves to the point where they cannot differentiate between Baruch Mordechai and Arur Haman. To fulfill this one should drink a little more wine than usual and take a nap. It is forbidden to get drunk since that causes people to do aveirot and inappropriate things and is inexcusable. Rather a person should drink a little more than usual just to the point that he starts to feel slightly tipsy. One who damages other's property out of drunkenness is required to pay just like any other day.  

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
