Blueberry blintzes, oh my
As I predicted yesterday, I was surrounded by blueberry blintzes (pictured) today.
I visited Camp Chaverim, the summer day camp operated at Temple B’nai Israel and coordinated by the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City.
I got there just in time for lunch and the youths were being treated to the blintzes with today’s meal.
It’s all because of Shavuot, the Jewish holiday commemorating the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelities.
By tradition, many Jewish families eat dairy products and foods made with dairy products during this time. This custom is related to the verse in the Torah that says the Lord gave them the land of milk and honey. Besides blintzes, cheesecake and ice cream are favorite treats during Shavuot.
Marcy Price, programs director for the Jewish Federation, coordinates Camp Chaverim each summer. She said the campers will have ice cream sundaes tomorrow in conjunction with Shavuot.
Look for more information on Camp Chaverim in a future edition of The Oklahoman.
