(In anticipation of Purim, the Orthodox Conundrum is rereleasing this classic episode from last year. The issues raised, unfortunately, apply just as much this year as last.)
Purim is, if not the most joyous holiday on the Jewish calendar, then certainly the most “fun.” And therein lies the problem: are we teaching our children and students that having fun requires alcohol? Is teenage alcohol abuse a real danger, or is it healthy to let loose given that it’s only one day a year? Is worrying about Purim drinking and the effects of kiddush clubs alarmist, or necessary? What should be done if you suspect that your kid has a problem, and how is “problem” even defined? Join Scott Kahn as he interviews Dr. Zev Ganz in this important and timely episode.
