Socializing With Non-Jews Without Alcohol

Social Drinking With Non-Jews

  1. When one is socializing with Jews and non-Jews, if there are more Jews than non-Jews, drinking is allowed.[1] If there are more non-Jews than Jews (and some even hold when it's half and half),[2] strict Halacha for Ashkenazim is that one may drink anything besides date honey beer,[3] but there are a wide range of opinions of what one can and cannot drink, reaching as far as an opinion that considers the possibility that one cannot drink any beverage.[4] Strict Sefardic Halacha is that one may not drink any beer in such a situation.[5]
