This edition of the Alef List (the hottest happenings around town for cool Jews like you) is brought to you by the letter B. Because sometimes it’s fun to look at the calendar in a different way.
This coming week is the anniversary of the most world changing event in the history of mankind. It is also one of the least well-known Jewish Festivals on the Jewish calendar.
Shavuot commemorates the receiving of the Torah from Mount Sinai. To celebrate we eat milk-ful dishes like blintzes and cheesecake. I know — being Jewish is sooooooo rough.
