Sunday, May 16, 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. on zoom.us/j/84180370550


Teens in 6th and 7th grade (current Kadimaniks) and 5th graders (who will move from Club 45 into Kadima next year!) are invited to join Loen to make mini no-bake cheesecakes in honor of Shavuot!

Since there’s no baking, no adult assistance should be needed in making this recipe.

Shavuot starts at sunset on May 16. More about Bet Torah’s Shavuot celebrations.

Why do we eat cheesecake on Shavuot?

  • 24 whole Oreo cookies
  • 1 cup (240ml) cold heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • Two 8-ounce bricks (16 oz) cream cheese, room temperature (either Neufchâtel or full fat are best) – Cream cheese spread in a tub will not work as well.
