"Shalom, dudes. It's Friday night. Let's go get crunk ... at the synagogue!" It might sound preposterous, but it's happening with Orthodox Jewish teens all over Midwood. Brooklyn Daily is reporting that some adolescent boys have discovered they can go "shul-hopping," popping into temples around the hood for Shalom Zocher parties, where a baby boy's birth is toasted with booze. The practice has reportedly been happening for years, but lately it's become more of a problem, with at least two teens hospitalized recently for alcohol poisoning. Also, we'd imagine the Manischewitz hangovers are really a bitch. [Brooklyn Daily]
