The Purim Kiddush, 2006 edition
You can download it in Open Document format or PDF.
There have been a number of changes since last year:
- It's pointed!
- New Aramaic/English pun
- New Biblical quotes (one removed)
- Better integration of some Biblical quotes into the flow of the text
- Translation Super-Frummified™. All references to "God" replaced with "G-d" and "Lord" replaced with "Hash-m."
Comments and corrections welcome (especially on the Aramaic and pointing).
In case you'd like to study the history of this highly important liturgical text: The older editions are here (2005) and here (2004).

''I know that you share the president's and my commitment to maintaining the full faith and credit of the US government," Snow said in his letter to leaders in the House and Senate. His ''full faith and credit" comment referred to the Fourth Amendment. (emph. added)
