Spiritual Growth for Jews

Starbucks and Shushan Purim

Posted on | March 15, 2006 | By David Linn | 4 Comments

Realizing that many of us have difficulty gearing up for work on shushan purim, Starbucks is giving away free coffee today.

SEATTLE – Starbucks says it will give away free cups of coffee on Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. at 7,500 of its stores nationwide. The Seattle company expects it will give away 500,000 cups of coffee in its two-hour ‘national coffee break.’

Is this a great country for the Jews or what?

    Perhaps the owner of Starbucks was inspired by this event in his life: http://www.simpletoremember.com/ growth/Founder_of_Starbucks

    The SB in Seattle may have a hashgacha bt if they’r giving away coffee the day after Purim then they apparently all have “hashgacha pratis”
