    We All Had No Food To Eat, That's Why We Eat Dairy On Shavuos - Masbia of Boro Park

    Cheesecake from Strauss BakeryOn the holiday of Shavuos, we celebrate the day where all Jews stood at Mount Sinai 1312 BCE when all kosher laws came into effect and they found themselves without food. All of the food had become non-kosher and they needed to start their pantry from scratch. The first easy go-to food was milk and dairy so that's why we celebrate Shavuos with eating a dairy meal

    At Masbia, we serve people who find themselves without food every day. For this upcoming holiday, we are preparing extra large emergency food packages for families to be able to celebrate the holiday with food. Masbia of Boro Park will be open for holiday meals as well. 

    We need more fish, more meat, more challah, eggs, potatoes, and pasta to fill those packages and cook for the Shabbos and Yom Tov meals. This year, Shavuos lasts for 2 days. This amounts to a total of 6 special meals (4 Meat and 2 Dairy) that we hope to serve for Shavuos.

    For $72, you can sponsor a package for a family of four. Click here to donate packages
