Shavuot – The cheesy holiday of Israel


In the previous days, we have celebrated in Israel Shavuot.
Shavuot symbolized by eating cheese and dairy food. If you are not lactate sensitive, you might enjoy this holiday.
Is Shavuot is a cheesy holiday? I think it is . It is also a vegan friendly holiday.

So, what is Shavuot?

Shavuot means “weeks.” The term referring to the biblical holiday celebrated in Sivan 6th.this is the anniversary of the day the Jewish people were given the Torah in Sinai mountain.
In, Shavuot the counting of the ‘Omer that starting in Passover is ending, It is also the celebration on the harvest of the wheat.
In Shavuot time in the first days of the temple in Jerusalem, the people of Israel came with Bikkurim of the first fruit and the harvest. Three times that the Israeli and Jewish people who lived in, the days of the Temple in Jerusalem – In Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot.

desert of Israel

So, what are we cocking?

All the food blogs so as in the supermarket of Israel cheese and cheese deals.

Yes, But why?

A few reasons of eating dairy?

  • In the first books, they use to eat honey and milk in Shavuot
  • In the book of habits in Shavuot, you will eat milk and continuing. You need to eat meat because there is no happiness without meat.
  • In the Book of Delights saying that the dairy meal has to do in the night of the end of Sfirat Haomer.
  • In this day of the Bikkurim, we need to eat two meals, one is dairy, and the other is a meat meal.
  • The gematria of the word milk in Hebrew is 40 – 40 generations since Moshe wrote the Torah, 40 days that Moshe was on the mountain of Sinai.
  • When the people of Israel receive the Torah they cocked in one way when receiving the Torah, and now they have to make the meat in a Kosher way, They didn’t have meat after the Kosher so they could eat only dairy and none meat.

Eat Tel-Aviv 2019 – Culinary Eurovision in Israel

On the beautiful shores of Tel Aviv in the 16th time – the eat TLV festival in Charles Clore Park.
We all love food markets such as North Market, and some of the culinary well know of Israel.

This year Tel Aviv hosted the Eurovision, so here we have one more reason to celebrate! Not only the Eurovision but also the culinary landmarks of Israel and Tel Aviv.

So, what we had?

The chosen date had fantastic weather, excellent location, the best food of Israel, great music and a big party, every day of the festival days have the same – music, food, wine, and a great fun party.

One of the greatest things was that even the kids had the stuff to do. It’s incredible by the organizers and the city of Tel Aviv that the kids have things to do when the kids are having fun the parents having fun as well.

Anyone who loves food could find himself there with something great to eat, the entrance was for free, and the price of food is not over 35 Shekel a dish.

The festival started two decades ago and took place in the Yarkon park, I like this location better, but TLV parking is always hard.

All the best chefs of Israel and the culinary institutes came to cook, Such as – Haim Cohen, Shaul Ben Aderet, Omer Miller, and more.

Here are some restaurants that participate in the Eat Tel Aviv, some of them are well known:

The most tasty hamburger in Israel by Omer Miller:

Many more great restaurants and chefs came to the festival to cock and feed Israel and the tourist that came to the most significant event of the Year.

Right in between the food and desert you could grab some beer or glass of wine, maybe eat some dessert, hear good music if you had some luck you could see a concert.

I love these events, and I love to eat, I like to eat a good restaurant and not pay too much – even better.

We chose food from some of our favorite restaurants and didn’t have room for many more, unfortunately.

We bought beers and cocktails with the food, eating and drinking, sitting and walking, listening to great music.

These are some of the very few restaurants in Tel Aviv, and If you love food and Israel I will highly recommend of taking Israel experts food and wine tours, learn about the culinary side of Israel.

Eurovision

When we had enough, we just went out walking on the romantic Tel Aviv shores while the sun going done. It was a great ending to a great event.

Can’t wait for the next time, it will not be with the Eurovision activities, but I’m sure that the city of Tel Aviv will make sure we will have a great event.

Do you know what’s the best part is? If you didn’t make it this year there are dates for next year – 29-31 of May 2020, make sure you are saving the date. Just know that the culinary Eurovision will not take place in Israel…unfortunately.

I wish there will be many more fantastic events such as this one!
