When is the proper time to eat dairy on Shavuos? (night meal, day meal, prior to day meal, Shul Kiddush)


There are many different minhagim when it comes to Milchigs on Shvous. I know the Yekehs have a milchig meal at night. Many people have the Minhag to eat a Milchig meal by day. The chassidim on the other hand, will have some milchigs after kiddush (by day) and then wait half an hour before eating a full fleishig meal. (The logic being that a Seudah's yom tov needs to be with meat).

according to the rema oc 494,3 who first cites this minhag - and according to the machatzis hasehekel there - 7, one needs to have separate breads to be yotzei the korban shni halechem - that means a milchig meal followed by a fleishig meal is proper. r m feinstein - Shu”t Igros Moshe (O.C. vol. 1, 160) wrote that this is the best way to go as well.

I heard of a Chasidic Rebbe whose minhag on Shavous was to mix his morning tea with a spoon that was milchig ben-yomo.

So I guess you can be yotze with anything from there and beyond :).

  • Would this render the tea milchig? – Curiouser May 26 '11 at 21:04
  • @Curiouser To the extent that you wouldn't drink the tea and eat meat at the same time. – David Perlman May 26 '11 at 21:51

    @DavidPerlman nat-bar-nat on a cli sheini (that could be buttel b'shishim -- if spoon small enough relative to drink) to not eat at the SAME TIME? maybe not the same time mamash in ones mouth, but certainly couldn't eat at the same seudah – Yehoshua May 15 '13 at 19:38
  • @Yehoshua would you, at a fleishig meal, take a milchig spoon, ben-yomo or not, to mix your tea? – David Perlman May 29 '13 at 21:04
  • @DavidPerlman I wouldn't mind that at all. I wouldn't go out of my way to do so, but it's not a problem if that's what was available. – Double AA Jun 8 '17 at 20:29
