# 3055 The Real Spirit of Purim

Q. I heard that Horav Miller advised this year due to the recommended health restrictions to avoid making large Purim seudos and parties. How about inviting people that don’t have where to eat their seuda and would end up eating it alone?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that in such cases, it is important to help those individuals and that is the real spirit of Purim.
However, one must also keep the necessary social distancing and other important health conditions such as washing and disinfecting hands, and when applicable also plastic separators.
(See question 2868 regarding having guests for Sukos, especially for the ones that don’t have access to a Suka).
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
