Shavuot is a holiday that commemorates one of the most important events in Jewish history – when the Torah was given to us at Mount Sinai. For many, it is customary to spend the night learning. Traditionally, we eat dairy produce over Shavuot – especially cheesecake – traditional or fancy ! And it being a statutory holiday, many families picnic in the parks or at the beach. In addition, falling on a Sunday this year, it makes a nice long weekend !
Why do we eat dairy produce? www.chabad.org/shavuot gives interesting explanations.
Chag Shavuot Sameach.
