It is inappropriate for women and girls to mingle with guests when the mood is Purimdik!

Yes, the line within the poster is awesome, but things like this make me praise the Lord that I don’t live anywhere near this kind of stupidity.

    “Please try not to be noticed or heard, and be especially careful not to laugh out loud.”

    That says it all. Women are neither to be seen nor heard. They are merely kitchen appliances, washing machines and sperm receptacles- but only in the dark.

      Have some humility- you don’t know what you’re dealing with. Because of that, you can only have perceptions, not judgements. Only when a person knows all the aspects of something and how they are all interconnected and every other possible aspect of a thing can they truly judge. Of course you can judge without knowing something fully, but that would make it a lesser quality judgement, a bad judgement. That’s why only G-d can judge (perfectly), the One that has perfect knowledge.

        “Please try not to be noticed or heard.”

        That does say it all.

        Either you are giving us a post-modern, deconstructionist interpretation, or you are giving us Purim Torah. Which one is it?

    • anonymous February 27, 2013, 4:11 PM

      Yes…women should never actually enjoy themselves. If they do have the audacity to be where they can be seen, they should at least have the decency to look particularly downtrodden.

    Trouble, oh we got trouble,
    Right here in River City!
    With a capital “T”
    That rhymes with “P”
    And that stands for Pool,
    That stands for pool.
    We’ve surely got trouble!
    Right here in River City,
    Right here!
    Gotta figger out a way
    To keep the young ones moral after school!
    Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble…

  • Woodrow February 26, 2013, 1:32 PM

    Looks to me like Purim Torah- I find it hard to believe that it was intended seriously!

    • Heshy Fried February 26, 2013, 2:12 PM

      No one pays that much for a full page ad and has it be a joke and there’s been dozens of things like this that are serious. If you would have showed it to me 10 years ago, I would have agreed.

  • Harvonah February 26, 2013, 1:53 PM

    I guess they should be like Esther haMalkah and only party with two goyim

    • Sharon March 1, 2013, 4:24 AM

      Ha! Good one, Harvonah. And let’s not forget, become a glorified whore. With a goy, no less.

  • Tinok ShenishBeth February 26, 2013, 2:02 PM

    Huh! That’s odd because Purim is usually a Jewish holiday. I wonder if these people have ever thought about practicing Judaism – it’s really a beautiful and inclusive religion…

  • Michael February 26, 2013, 2:11 PM

    Yeah seriously be like Esther hamalka and participate in a beauty contest and marry a rich goy.

    • Heshy Fried February 26, 2013, 2:13 PM

      I know, I wonder why no one ever talks about the fact that Mordechai was a pimp.

      • AK February 26, 2013, 2:29 PM

        How was Mordachai a pimp?

        • Alter Cocker February 26, 2013, 8:27 PM

          “How was Mordachai a pimp?”

          I suggest you read the megillah…

          • Heshy Fried February 27, 2013, 10:08 AM

            Vashti seems to be the tznius one of the story, ironic huh

            • musicluver March 4, 2013, 11:36 PM

              All the more way for G-d to show he’s the one pulling the strings….

  • Anonymous February 26, 2013, 3:07 PM

    Ester was married to Mordechai. If she is forced to sleep with the king she can go back to Mordechai, but if she willfully goes to the king for sex she could never go back to her husband. That’s why she said “kasher ovadeti ovadeti” “I lost it”. She gave her life to save the Jews.

    • Sharon March 1, 2013, 4:26 AM

      “She gave her life to save the Jews.” Yeah, that’s how the story goes, but I find that very hard to believe. I think marrying the king was what she really wanted. Social climbing never goes out of style.

    • Alter Cocker March 1, 2013, 1:16 PM

      True, but who/what are you addressing?

  • Anonymous February 26, 2013, 4:12 PM

    Isn’t vashti the one who hid from the men

    • Alter Cocker February 26, 2013, 8:28 PM

      Yes, the people who created this ad have never actually read the megillah. It’s sad.

  • Yael February 26, 2013, 5:10 PM

    Usually I find that there are plenty of men who would benefit from a refresher course on how the laws of tznius apply when the mood is “Purim’dik.”

  • AC February 26, 2013, 6:09 PM

    If Purim is like Yom Kippur, than the girls should be the ones dancing.

    Am I the only one that noticed that the phone number is the same one from the Chanukah ad?

    • Alter Cocker February 26, 2013, 8:26 PM

      people need to start dialing that number.

  • ms February 27, 2013, 2:52 AM

    While the tone of this is condescending and indicitive of small mindedn
    ess, I nevertheless agree with the general sentiments of the piece.
    Due to the merry and frivolous nature of a typical Purim seuda I am of the opinion that it should be seperate tables or at least women one end and men at the other.
    It does not mean that women cannot have their own fun and need to be watching from the sidelines, just that it should be a little seperate.
    I am not chassidish or particularly yeshivish and shtarkers manarkers but I think it is just common sense.

  • Challah Maidel February 27, 2013, 6:04 AM

    I’m surprised that they didn’t attempt to take it a step further and forbid women and girls from celebrating Purim altogether. Apparently having a good time is not tznius. Women should just cover up and shut up!

    • AztecQueen2000 February 27, 2013, 9:49 AM

      But who would make all the mishloach manot and serve at the seudah?

      • anonymous February 27, 2013, 4:14 PM

        Exactly…someone needs to cook and serve the food. As long as they aren’t too happy about it and have a miserable time and avoid being seen, all is well!

  • Crowin' Cock February 27, 2013, 7:14 AM

    “Please try not to be noticed or heard, and be especially careful not to laugh out loud.” – Priceless! After all, hearing women laugh may cause Purim dick swelling.

  • fraudster February 27, 2013, 8:25 AM

    To tell the “innocent” buchrim NOT to go to homes that have
    “Ester’dikeh” women and girls would NEVER occur to this “sicko” bunch.
    It involves resisting some MONEY.
    If a buchor KNOWS that there are girls in someones home he is OIVER ah ISSUR CHUMOR just by going up the steps leading to this TREIFA home.
    I guess the MONEY is more important then the AVAIRA.
    Bottom line: Their a fraud.

    • Alter Cocker February 27, 2013, 9:41 AM


      horrible logic complete with bad grammar and spelling.

  • check it out February 27, 2013, 8:27 AM

    Of course the phone is a cell phone -not a real organization.

  • Devils Advocate February 27, 2013, 10:22 AM

    The Purim story is about a strong woman who used her sexuality to save her people. She didn’t repress herself. She didn’t stay covered up and hide from men. It’s a story of female empowerment.

  • Izzy February 28, 2013, 2:19 PM

    Oy…the great powers that Hashem bestowed on those born with the Y Chromosome!

    Me thinks the fellow who placed the ad should retire with the Pope….as they would have a lot in common

  • Alter Cocker February 28, 2013, 3:09 PM

    I think I’m going to call up and attempt to explain the story of the megillah to whichever besotten fool answers the phone.

    The Jewish people would have been wiped out had Esther done what this ad suggests.

  • For Real February 28, 2013, 10:23 PM

    Purim dick- when it’s Purim and girls get dressed up in attention-getting costumes to tempt the drunk, horny desperate guys at Purim parties.

    Example: “My slutty Queen Esther costume is ready. Time to get some Purim dick!”

    Good Lrd. We can all thank G-d that Esther haMalka herself did not follow this advice or else there would be no Jews to take it.
