Announcing Summer Series

Having held three spring Cincinnati local Texts-and-Tastings events around the holidays, Jewish Drinking is now gearing up for a summer series on drunkenness in rabbinic literature.

Spring Events
Kicking off the spring’s events with an event on the semi-rare celebration of Purim Katan, the event delved into texts in our tradition on this topic, resulting in an episode on this topic. This event was our second annual February BYOB wine event.

The next two events featured a case of wine for tasting for review purposes from, with the first event about a couple of aspects of Purim, the recording of which will be released in advance of Purim next year, as we enjoyed a half-dozen rosés.

Our third and final spring event finished off that case of wines, which had a couple of white wines and a handful of red wines, as we discussed drinking between the cups of the as we discussed drinking between the cups at the Seder, resulting in this episode.

Summer Series
Our summer series kicks off next week, featuring a fascinatingly under-discussed topic: drunkenness in early rabbinic literature. Here is the lineup of the summer events and topics:

  • June 19th – Drunkenness in the Talmud Yerushalmi
  • July 11th – Drunkenness in the Talmud Bavli, part 1
  • August 14th – Drunkenness in the Talmud Bavli, part 2
