My family has cheesecake right before the meal, but we never actually have a full milchig meal… was wondering what everyone else does (and is it your communities minhag, or just what your family does…?)
There is no community minhag in NY. My family has full milchig meals at night; day meals are either fully milchig or fully fleishig.
My husband holds that we are supposed to eat fleishig meals on Shavuos, just like any other YT, but we space it out that we have a fully milchig meal as a third seudah that we wash for in the mid afternoon on YT.
We mix it up from year to year.
This year we had dairy for the day meals and meat for the night meals.
lowerourtuition11210: Wondering, do you mean there is literally no community minhag in NY?
I’m confused. Isn’t NY huge? Aren’t there at least dozens of communities? Did you mean that none of any of those communities have a Shavous milchig minhag?
LB, I believe lot112 meant that there isn’t a *single* minhag for all of NY.
Thank you Joseph. You correctly interpreted what I meant.
We had two meals over the chag; both milchig. Otherwise, how could we have the Ben & Jerry’s?
Joseph, thanks! I took it too literally then 🙂
loweryourtuition11210, thanks 🙂 for the clarity too!
takahmamash: use the non-dairy Ben and Jerry’s?
