Dairy on Shavuot - Part IV


We have mentioned that many people eat dairy on Shavuot, and given a few explanations for the practice.

One more reason for eating dairy is that the Torah is compared, in Songs of Songs, to honey and milk. For this reason many people eat honey, as well as dairy, on Shavuot.

(Mishneh Berurah 494:13)

Have a great day,
