Where Is The Cheesecake

 

 


שבעה שבועות מנהגים 

1) Eating seven-layer cake.
2) Getting high on laced saffron cake
3) Throwing down apples from the Shul roof
4) Wearing face masks
5) Pouring & spraying water on passersby
6) Eating a four-cornered Challah
7) Young children brought to Shul wrapped in a coat.



What to bake for שבועות



(a) Seven-layer cake

(b) 3 cornered kreplach- Haman Taschen

(c) Saffron Matzah

(d) Saffron cake

(e) 4 cornered Challah

(f)  Honey cake

(g) Butter Challah 


I have yet to find a 
source for cheesecake 





The Sefer יוסף אומץ ס' תתנ"ד writes the Minhag was to make a cake/kugel in the shape of a (a) seven-rung ladder. The reason for it is because, during  Matan Torah, Hashem tore open all 7 heavens to show that אין עוד מלבדו

The Minhag in many German Kehilos was to bake for שבועות  a seven-layer cake for the seven weeks we counted.


The Sefer מנהגי ישורון writes of the Minhag to eat (b) 3 cornered Kreplach (Haman Taschen) to commemmerate Matan Torah דיהיב אוריאן תליתאילעם תליתאי ע"י תליתאי ביום תליתאי בירחא תליתאי

The כל בו writes that "the מנהג בכל ישראל* is to eat on שבועות,
(c) Matzah with Saffron".The Chok Yaakov O. Ch.494 has a
(d) girsa “עוגה” (cake) instead of Matzah. The כל בו gives the reason " because it is משמח את הלב (brings joy to the heart)."

Saffron has an ancient history of use as a drug.It has a narcotic effect 
similar to opium.
 

The כל בו also writes to bake a (e) Challah with four corners (looks like two)  to remind us of the שתי הלחם and/or it
symbolizes "twins" (מזל סיון תאומים


The רוקח writes that on Shavuos morning you bring the
children for the first time in Shul and serve them a specially
inscribed (f) honey cake.

The משנה ברורה quotes from the מגן אברהם to bake
(g) one Challah with butter. This will force you to have another Challah (זכר לשתי הלחם) to eat with the meat.
