Jewish Tradition Allows Occasional Wine

BY RABBI SAMUEL FOX

(Copyright 1976, JTA, Inc.)

Jewish tradition takes a
stand on the consummation
of alcoholic beverages.
Wine was used in the
course of offering sacrifices
at the altar. It was poured
in ceremonious fashion. The
use of wine was approved in
the Book of Psalms which
considers wine useful be-
cause it "gladdens the heart
of man" (Psalms 104:15).

MARVIN CHECK

MARVIN ROSEN

(Genesis 19:30). The rebel-
lious son is described as the
one who makes it a habit to
eat meat and drink wine
(Deuteronomy 21:18). The
priests are forbidden to im-
bibe before performing the
service in the sanctuary.
Some rabbis consider the
Nazarite who forbid himself
to drink wine a saintly per-
son while others considered
him a sinner. On one holi-

3/4

day the rabbis even advised
getting drunk, i.e., Purim,
although this was discour-
aged in excess because of a
tragic occurrence that once
happened.

A German Jew, Emile
Berliner, improved Bell's
original design of the
telephone which made it
practical for long-
distance use.

It is as hard to please a
knave as a knight.
