PURIM 2013: Um Alerta Comunitário Contra A Bebedeira e a Bebida em Purim de Rabino Dr. Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.

Uma importante mensagem do Rabino Dr. Abraham J. Twerski, M.D contra a Bebedeira em Purim, dirigida para os Rabinos e líderes comunitários, pais e adolescentes...


Como você sabe, eu tenho de alertar a comunidade para o crescentes problemas de abuso de álcool e fumo de maconha entre adolescentes judeus.


É lamentável que muitas pessoas ainda não aceitam que algumas das nossas próprias crianças estejam envolvidas. Isto está acontecendo com crianças das melhores famílias.


Dada a gravidade do problema e a ineficácia de programas preventivos, o mínimo que podemos fazer é de não incentivar a Intoxicação.


Purim esta muito próximo de nós, e muitas pessoas bebem em excesso, devido à noção equivocada de que existe uma Mitzvá "para ficar bêbado" em Purim.


Rabino Shneur Zalmande Liadi (Primeiro Rebe da Linhagem da Chassidut Chabad) em seu Shulchan Aruch HaRav (529) diz: "É impossível servir Hashem quer na leviandade ou na embriaguez".


Uma das autoridades da Halachá, o Chafetz Chaim ( Chofetz Chaim) no Mishna Berura (695) diz claramente que a coisa apropriada a fazer não é beber até ficar bêbado, mas sim beber um pouco mais do que é habitual (o que seria um copo ou dois de vinho), e ir dormir.


Esta é a maneira correta de cumprir com "não fazer a distinção entre": "maldito seja Haman" " e "bendito seja Mordechai ".


Não há nenhuma justificativa para beber qualquer bebida, além de vinho.


O Aruch Hashulchan (695) Condena beber (bebidas com alcool), utilizando termos fortes e pesados. Intoxicação alcoólica é uma abominação, e segundo as decisões do Bal HaTanya e Chofetz Chaim beber até a intoxicação (bebedeira) é indesculpável.


Vamos usar o bom senso em Purim. Devemos definir um modelo para os nossos filhos, não bebendo em excesso e supervisionando os adolescentes, para que eles também não bebam.


Todos nós podemos desfrutar de um Purim RESPEITÁVEL e seguro.


Convido-os a colocar sua assinatura abaixo, indicando a sua concordância e apoio, e distribuir esta carta a todas as comunidades.


Atenciosamente,


Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. [Purim 2010]


CARTA ORIGINAL - EM INGLÊS


Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.


Message from Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.
To our esteemed rabbis and community leaders:

As you know, I have been alerting the community of the increasing problem of alcohol abuse and marijuana smoking among Jewish adolescents. It is unfortunate that many people still do not accept that some of our own children are involved. This is happening to children from the finest families.

Given the gravity of the problem and the ineffectiveness of prevention programs, the very least we can do is to avoid encouraging intoxication.

Purim is soon upon us, and many people drink to excess because of the mistaken notion that there is a "mitzvah" to get drunk on Purim. Rabbi Shneur Zalman in his Shulchan Aruch (529) says, "It is impossible to serve Hashem either in levity or drunkenness." One of the final authorities on halacha, the Chafetz Chaim in Mishna Berura (695) states clearly that the proper thing to do is not to drink to intoxication, but rather to drink just a bit more than is customary (which would be a glass or two of wine), and go to sleep. This is the proper way to fulfil "not distinguishing between 'cursed be Haman' and 'blessed be Mordechai.' "

There is certainly no justification for drinking anything but wine. Aruch Hashulchan (695) condemns drinking spirits (liquor) in very sharp terms. Alcohol intoxication is an abomination, and overriding the rulings of the Baal Hatanya and the Chafetz Chaim by drinking to intoxication is inexcusable.

Let us use good judgement on Purim. We should set a model for our children by not drinking to excess and by supervising adolescents so that they do not drink. We can all enjoy a safe, respectable Purim.

I invite you to affix your signature below, indicating your agreement and support, and to distribute this letter throughout the community.

Sincerely,

Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.

MAIS UM ALERTA [INGLÊS]


Hagaon Harav Shmuel Kamentzky made the bold statement: “Getting drunk on Purim is an aveirah, not a mitzvah

New York - In the Talmud, there are differing opinions on some halachos, and we must conduct ourselves according to the rulings of the poskim. For example, R’ Yosi Hagelili believe that the issur of meat and milk does not apply to fowl, but the psak halachah is otherwise. Anyone who eats butter-fried chicken is a treifniak.


After the early poskim there were the later ones, and because they were in the position to weigh all the earlier opinions, we follow their psak, which is essentially in the Shulchan Aruch. There were great poskim after the Shulchan Aruch, and for all intents and purposes, klal Yisrael has accepted the Mishna Berurah by the Chafetz Chaim as our halachah today.


In regard to the mitzvah to drink on Purim, Ramah says that one need not get drunk, but to drink just a bit more than one usually does, and take a nap. The Mishnah Berurah (695), says “This is the proper thing to do.” This is the halachah we must live by today. Getting drunk is improper. That is the halachah.


Experience in the past several years has been that particularly young people who drink to excess on Purim get into both shameful and dangerous behavior. Hatzalah cannot keep up with the calls to take these young men to hospital emergency rooms! Can anyone conceive that this is a mitzvah?


Beis Yosef quotes Orchos Chaim: “The mitzvah to drink on Purim does not mean to get drunk, because being drunk is a total issur, and there is no aveirah greater than this!” I believe that based on this, and the observation of the tragedies resulting from excess drinking on Purim, Hagaon Harav Shmuel Kamentzky made the bold statement that “Getting drunk on Purim is an aveirah, not a mitzvah.”


Parents! Exercise your authority to prevent your children from harming themselves or others! Make it abundantly clear to them that you will not tolerate excessive drinking, regardless of what their misguided friends may do.


Baale batim! When bachurim visit your homes on Purim, do not serve them alcohol. Neither wine, beer, nor liquor. They can have the permissible amount (no more than 4 ½ ounces of wine) at home, under their parents’ supervision.


Remember this! If you serve a young man alcohol, and it has a harmful consequence to him or others, you are responsible for that mishap!


Rabbanim and Rebeeim! B”H, our children look up to you for guidance. Help them and the community stay healthy and well by speaking out unequivocally against getting drunk on Purim. They will listen to you more than to others.


May we all enjoy a truly joyous and safe Purim.
