Shavuot – The Annual Year of Cheese

At the end of the Passover (Pesach) Seder, Jews count 7 weeks (49 days) until the holiday of Shavuot, the Festival of the Giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.

Our spiritual redemption is celebrated by eating fresh fruit, granting this holiday the nickname of the Festival of the First Fruits.

On Shavuot, we stay up all night studying Torah, wake up early to pray, study the Book of Ruth, eat plenty of dairy meals and read the 10 Commandments at Synagogue. Shavuot night is traditionally celebrated by a fully dairy meal with salmon or fish. Check out our great dairy recipes for Shavuot below:
