What is the Rebbe’s Gzeira?
In a series of ‘Stump The Rabbi’ questions, Rabbi Shlomo Goldfarb answers many interesting questions. In this clip he responds to “What is the restriction the Rebbe made with regard to drinking mashke?” • Watch
Wait, the Rabbi said when the Rebbe came out with the Takana abt 4, the 4 cups should equal up a Riveis all together & not more, here the Rabbi said that it shouldn’t be a Riveis ? Now on Purim what if you’re drinking wine only no vodka or whiskey does it still have 2 be a Riveis or could it be more being that the Rebbe only said vodka & whiskey & wine is not included as & what abt beer, Now once a someone turns 40 this Gezeirah or Takana doesn’t apply anymore & 1 could say as many Lechaims as he likes but still he should control himself, now what was the reason till 40, why not 45 or 50 ?
