Shavuot 5771

The cheesecake is in the oven*, and so now’s the perfect time to sit back and enjoy these two classic Israeli Shavuot songs:

“Saleinu Al Kteifeinu”

The lyrics are available here.

“Shibolet BaSadeh”

The lyrics are available here, and an English translation is available here.

!חג שבועות שמח


* Not to show off or anything – well, not TOO much, anyway… - but BA”H, the entire Shiputzim family made it all the way through Sefirat HaOmer with a brachah. How about you? Did you earn your cheesecake? :-)


  1. How did you manage that?? The female part of our family made it till about the middle of the 3rd week with a bracha which is generally par for the course.

  2. Loved the music clips. Made me want to rush right out to the fields with my basket and collect wheat. Then I remembered that I live in Brooklyn. Oh, well.
    Hope you have a nice holiday!

  3. Congratulations to your family; I only managed the first 2 weeks with the brachah (unlike last year where I never forgot). Still my cheesecake is in the oven too!
    Chag Sameach!

  4. Mrs Belogski - I usually find that the first week or two - until one gets into a routine - are the hardest. In any event, I get no credit. BA"H, YZG (aka "Mr. S.") is very good about reminding the rest of us....

    SuperRaizy - Then I remembered that I live in Brooklyn.
    That's just a minor detail... :-)

    Ilana-Davita - What kind of cheesecake did you make? I hope you had a wonderful chag!

  5. I ate by G6 on Shavous her chhesecake was out of the world.

  6. YW - her cheesecake was out of the world.
    I'm not surprised to hear that! :-)
