We have just finished Shavuot and now the long wait through the summer for the High Holidays….
There will be two fast days over the summer but other than that, not too much Jewish decorating going on. Unless of course you choose to celebrate Tu B’Av! The Jewish day of love. It usually falls in the middle of the summer. I don’t personally know anyone that celebrates Tu B’Av… but maybe we should all start.
According to My Jewish Learning…
Originally a post-biblical day of joy, it served as a matchmaking day for unmarried women in the second Temple period (before the fall of Jerusalem in 70 C.E.). Tu B’Av was almost unnoticed in the Jewish calendar for many centuries but it has been rejuvenated in recent decades, especially in the modern state of Israel. In its modern incarnation it is gradually becoming a Hebrew-Jewish Day of Love, slightly resembling Valentine’s Day in English-speaking countries.
Hi everyone, we are working on getting our site back and better then before. We had a little deletion mishap, though the future should be brighter and more colorful then ever! We look forward to celebrating all the Jewish Holidays in style soon enough with everyone!
