Interesting Psak: Getting Drunk on Purim During Corona

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

Kikar is reporting on an interesting psak issued by several rabonim from Bnei Braq, including Rav Yitzchak Zilbershtein, Rav Shimon Baadani, Rav Sariel Rosenberg and Rav Yehuda Silman.

The psak the rabbonim issued says that because of Corona people should not get drunk this year on Purim.

What's the connection between Corona and getting drunk on Purim, you might ask?

During Corona if someone gets drunk and clouds his ability to make good decisions he might end up not being careful with the necessary care to be taken to protect oneself from becoming exposed to Corona. This will also cause the infection numbers to rise and will cause a danger to the public.

 Additionally, the rabbonim add, this year with Purim on Friday, getting drunk can possibly lead to chilul shabos.
