Shavuos begins seemlessly after Shabbas on Saturday night May 23rd
It continues until Monday May 25th shortly after dark.
Shavuos marks the completion of the 7 week counting period (omer)
between Passover & Shavuos.
The Ten Commandments were given to us on Shavuos.
Visit Shavuos Customs which has been updated with 2015 dates.
CHEESECAKES RECIPES FOR SHAVUOS
No matter what your custom about Dairy foods on Shavuos is,
cheesecake is usually somewhere on the menu.
There are plenty of full-fat cheesecake recipes 'out there."
So we select only the healthier cheesecake recipies each year
& add them to our growing list.
If you have a favorite we've missed, don't hesitate to send the recipe to us.

EVERYDAY BRACHAS YOU NEED
Visitors to KosherWoman.com have told us that our Bracha pages
help them out when they are away from their home & at home.
Some are at restaurants & need to know the 'after' bracha
for their meal.
They like that they can visit KosherWoman.com via their cell phone
& get the proper bracha
A lot of mothers aren't sure which Bracha to say before you eat each cereal
because there are 2 possibilities
Me'zonos OR Sha'hakol
Others don't don't which Bracha to use after eating the each cereal
because again there are 2 possibilities
Ahl' Hah'michya OR a Borei Neh'faw'shoce
The daily brachas you need are on KW in English, Hebrew & Transliteration
