Quick Overview

An Inside Look at Purim and the Month of Adar


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.
