Cheese Cake Contest

We are excited! We are soooo excited!! Shavuos is a time when men stay up all night learning or reciting the Tikkun Leil Shavuos as arranged by the ARIZa”L in the 16th Century. Ashkenazim read Akdomos, Sephardim sing Azharot and both recite Megillas Ruth. It is a time when we celebrate our having said “Na’aseh venishma – We will do and we will listen!” as Hakodosh Boruch Hu offered and gave us the Torah. But it is also a time when we eat lots of dairy foods: blintzes, cheesecake, and more! Some say we adapted this custom because of Shlomo Hamelech‘s portrayal of the Torah as “devash vechalav tachat leshonech – like honey and milk it lies under your tongue (Shir Hashirim 4:11)”

All the above should be enough to get us excited but there is more…

Contest! Contest! Contest!
