This Purim is unlike any we have ever experienced before. Normally I would be sharing some responsible precautions and the importance of consideration when offering others a drink. However, this year we have an additional set of rules to follow while we safely enjoy our Purim holiday. So let’s consider the following:
Every year, I will always remind the community never to insist on a l’chaim, you never know who may be sober, struggling or simply refuse.
When drinking, please remember to drink responsibly.
This year we want to remind everyone to celebrate responsibly. This includes adhering to proper covid precautions and sensible behavior. This is after all the holiday of masks, please wear yours responsibly.
We ask for your understanding and consideration for this ongoing pandemic. Please be safe and visit responsibly.
Reminder, there are many in our midst who wear masks year round, masks of abuse, mental health issues, addiction, and more. Calling and checking-in this Purim holiday can really make a person’s day and even have greater positive impact towards their well-being. It’s meaningful when someone thinks of you, it means a lot to those you call.
But most important of all, please make sure that you have a very happy Purim.

Happy Purim and good Shabbos,
