Shavuot Fest

  • May 19, 2013 · 2:00 PM

We will be having a fabulous festival for Shavuot - it is actually an event geared towards kids and families - those of you without young kids, bring nephews, nieces, neighbors, friends, etc. who do have kids - (Jewish or not, veg or not, bring the kids to this special celebration).

Those who are committed to attending will be contacted the Friday preceding with the precise address - the location, though, is in Tarzana. 

In the meanwhile, get over to No Udder Desserts for a piece of vegan cheesecake sometime during the week of Shavuot while there is no religious requirement to do so, it has become a tradition for those celebrating Shavuot to do so with eating dairy, especially cheesecake - thus, I encourage anyone celebrating Shavuot this week to get to No Udder Desserts, Inc. for a piece of their amazing vegan cheesecake - I will aim to do so myself soon - maybe Thursday the 16th around 1pm - anyone want to join me? 

FYI, the ancient Torah based reason for eating dairy at this time is that Shavuot is the celebration of the giving of the Torah and the wandering Jewish people getting closer to returning to their homeland that is said to have been "a land flowing with milk and honey" - it has thus become tradition to eat milk and honey products at Shavuot - actually, though, the milk of which the Torah speaks is almond milk and the honey is date honey.

[Also, the gematria of the Hebrew word for dairy, Chalav, equals 40 and Shavuot celebrates Moses's coming down Mount Sinai after 40 days with the commandments.]
