Sorry, no etymologies found.
It was a sleepy June day, as I recall -- the festival of Shavuoth.
I made this cake for Shavuoth in Jerusalem fairly high altitude.

Overnight music video The period between Passover and Shavuoth is a period during which a lot of bad things have happened over the course of Jewish history.
For instance the Sermon on the Mount comes at Shavuoth, the time of the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.
I will be off the grid due to the two-day observance of the Jewish festival of Shavuoth, the celebration of the Revelation that made the Jews the "chosen nation," starting tonight through Saturday night.
