Hebrew: מתכונים לשבעות

The festival of Shavuot is celebrated on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer as well the day the Torah was given at Mount Sinai. It is one of the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals (shalosh regalim) during which we are supposed to go up to Jerusalem.

It is traditional to eat dairy products on Shavuot.   One of the reasons for this is; until the Jewish people received the Torah at Mount Sinai there were no special dietary laws.  When the Torah was given, we received specific commandments and instructions for slaughtering and preparing meat for eating. This meant that at that time all that they had been eating and the utensils they had been using, were  “not kosher.”  Until they could make them kosher, the only alternative was to eat dairy products that required no advance preparation.
