“Blintzes and Books” is our traditional Jewish holiday Shavuot celebration. The spring holiday is a time for dairy foods and for celebrating Jewish – and world – literature, based on the legend that the holiday commemorates the giving of the 10 commandments, the beginning of Jewish literature.
TVCJ will celebrate the holiday with a potluck brunch and program from 10:30 am to noon on Sunday, May 24 at a member’s home in Pleasanton. Participants are asked to bring a dairy brunch dish to share and have in mind a book they enjoyed reading in the past year. Each participant will briefly discuss his or her book recommendation. Adults and children are welcome, as are contributions of favorite toppings for blintzes. Suggested donation for non-member adults is $5.
