Episode 3 | Jewish Law

Madness and frivolity ensues as the weird and wonderful festival of Purim is celebrated by the community as a whole, young and old. Purim is the only day in the Jewish calendar when it is a Mitzvah (a commandment) to get drunk, and exotically dressed visitors must literally sing for their supper.
