7 Simple Shavuot Recipes Kids Can Make


Seven weeks after Passover ends, it’s time to celebrate Shavuot. This holiday marks the biblical story of receiving the Ten Commandments and the Torah at Mt. Sinai.

One very delicious and fun Shavuot tradition is eating dairy. Some people say that the reason to consume dairy treats on Shavuot is because not eating meat makes everyone feel lighter, physically—a good reminder about the spiritual light that comes with receiving the Torah. Some popular Shavuot treats include blintzes, bourekas—a cheese stuffed pastry from Israel, and of course, cheesecake.

This resource contains 7 easy recipes that can be done with children in a school or congregational setting, or shared with families.
