BEBIDAS ALCOHOLICAS EL GENTIL

A colación de la Halajá en la que analizamos beber café en los cafes de gentiles en la diáspora, muchas personas preguntan sobre beber bebidas alcoholicas con los gentiles en los cafes, restaurantes, etc.

En principio, es apropiado aclarar que en este contexto no analizamos el kashrut de estas bebidas, ya que existen numerosas bebidas que en general no presentan problemas de kashrut, como el wiskie o la cerveza e incluso las personas religiosas las consumen libremente. Sin embargo otro tipo de bebida debe contar con la supervisión rabínica ortodoxa para certificar su condición de kasher.

Nuestros sabios prohibieron comer incluso frutas o verduras en los lugares de reunion de los gentiles. Al respecto, existe otra prohibición que es la de consumir bebidas alcoholicas en los lugares de expendio de las mismas.

Por lo tanto, está prohibido consumir cerveza, wiskie, etc. en los bares o restaurantes de los gentiles. El motivo de este decreto es evitar el contacto con el gentil mas intenso que lleve a la asimilación y los casamientos mixtos.

Con respecto al café, sería apropiado prohibir asimismo su consumo en los bares de gentiles, pues como escribe Ramba”m (Leyes sobre Alimentos Prohibidos cap. 17) incluso si el judío bebe sólo no se debe beber en los lugares de los gentiles. Sin embargo, escribe Rabí Abdalla Somej z”l (Gran Rabino de Irak hace mas de 100 años) que se suele autorizar esto debido a que en la actualidad se utiliza esta bebida como convite y por lo tanto el negarse puede provocar diferencias o discriminación.
Esta autorización no alcanza a las bebidas alcoholicas las cuales estan totalmente prohibidas de beber en los lugares de los gentiles.
