Shavuot – its history and observances

21 May

I have some exciting news for you all today! I am blessed to be able to, every so often, post on kehilat ari yehuda‘s website. This is the congregation that we belong to here in the Portland area. My first post there has just gone up and I’d absolutely love for you to go see it!

Shavuot is coming up this weekend and I share about the history of the holy day, how we can observe it and also some recipes and crafts to do!

    It is always interesting to hear of others beliefs. I think we all should be open, and accepting.

      I agree – I think you can learn so much about someone just by hearing about their beliefs and the traditions it has =) thanks for taking the time to comment Rose!

    Nice blog, Laura! I want to try the cashew cheesecake! It looks so good. I remember making cashew ice cream that was sooo good!

    Thank you for the history lesson. it’s always nice to learn about Jewish customs. I think I’d like to try the “pasta broccoli and pine nuts” recipe. The crafts are cute ideas as well.
