Shavuot - Eating Dairy


Some people have a practice of eating dairy foods with at least one meal on Shavuot.

One explanation for this practice is that in this way we end up eating a dairy meal and a meat meal, and so we eat from at least two separate loaves of bread - paralleling the two loaves which are brought as an offering in the Beit haMikdash on Shavuot.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 494:3)

Have a great day,
