Happy Purim! (and the BBC moves Megillat Esther)

Purim

Wishing all readers celebrating Purim a very happy holiday. 

Purim is of course a festival marked with plenty of humour. The BBC has – perhaps unwittingly – contributed some laughs with its attempt to ‘do’ Purim in an article – placed in the Travel section of its website – which makes a clear case for writers not to indulge in unfamiliar alcohol when committed to accuracy. 

“…there are three things you are supposed to do on Purim: read the Megillah (the relevant section of the Talmud, the central religious Jewish text)…”

Chag Sameach!
