What is the significance of the month of Adar?
In which cities is the Megillah read
not twice, but four times?
Why does the Talmud apparently praise drunkenness
on Purim, when in general it frowns on such behavior?
In this meticulously researched work, Rabbi Naphtali Winter
explores the laws and customs of Purim and the month of
Adar, plumbing the depths of their reasons, origins, and rami-
fications. Follow his journey into the ancient sources to learn
about the four parshiyos, the Purim rav, and the various Purim
Sheini celebrations, as well as the stories behind them.
Despite the anti-Semitism that is still rife in the world, the
Jewish people continue to thrive, whether through appar-
ently natural events or by openly miraculous ones. In Pu-
rim Discovered, you’ll learn the secrets of our nation’s Purim
practices across the ages — and how they connect us to the
miracles of our very existence.
