When You Think About It, Purim's An Odd Holiday

As Jews, we're usually a pretty reserved bunch. We're not about wild parties and wanton revelry, yet in many Jewish homes and synagogues you'll find what seems to be exactly that; as Gus Brown, the custodian in the Philadelphia Yeshiva used to call it, Purim is the "Jewish Drunk Day!" How should we approach this holy day of Purim, and how can we use it to find meaning. Luckily, we have Rabbi Uriel Gross who will give us the Maharal's approach to this holiday.
