No Purim whisky for Yeshivah boys

    The Gateshead Rav, Rabbi Shraga Faivel Zimmerman, has banned yeshivah boys from drinking spirits on Purim.

    He said that they only should drink wine in moderation on the festival.

    In a public notice, Rabbi Zimmerman said the dangers of alcoholic consumption had been highlighted by life-threatening incidents in recent years.

    He also stated: “Alcoholic drinks and beverages must not be served to anyone already intoxicated.”
