Every spring, Jews around the world celebrate Shavuot, a holiday commemorating the wheat harvest and the giving of the Torah by God to the Jews at Mount Sinai. It is traditional on Shavuot to eat a feast of dairy foods, such as blintzes, kugel (sweet noodle pudding), and cheeses.

Join us in a Shavuot meal with a contemporary spin, where dairy is complemented by fresh fruits and vegetables celebrating the bounty of fresh food available in spring and early summer. This menu is prepared by local chef Lior Ben-Yehuda.
