The wilderness of Judea: a perfect setting for the night of Tu B'Av
The three weeks, the nine days and the ninth of Av are behind us - and with all the gloom out of the way, a Jerusalemite is free to turn to thoughts of luvvvvvvv. It's time for Tu B'Av, the Jewish holiday of love-or-something. The holiday's roots and proper celebrations are hazy, so Israelis have made it their equivalent of Valentine's Day - so this weekend is made for lovin'. Crank up the Marvin, pour the red wine and get ready for yet another week in Jerusalem.
