Shavuot, a Jewish holiday celebrated 50 days after the second day of Passover, begins on the evening of June 4 and ends on the evening of June 6. It marks the liberation of Jewish people from slavery in Egypt.

Referred to as the "Feast of Weeks," Shavuot is celebrated for two different events — the harvest of early summer and the giving of Torah, or the Five Books of Moses, to Israelites on Mount Sinai.

Jews celebrate Shavuot by taking a day’s leave, attending special prayer services in a synagogue, and eating a special meal. Many Sephardic Jews also sing a poem called Azharot.
