Shavuot Recipes

By InterfaithFamily


It is customary to eat a dairy meal at least once during Shavuot. One reason is that it is a reminder of the promise that Israel would be a land flowing with “milk and honey.” Another reason might be because the Israelites abstained from eating meat as part of their purification before receiving the Torah. No one really knows how this tradition started, but it is a good excuse to indulge in dairy delicacies!
