Celebrate Jewish Valentine’s Day with Jewcy

Cue “Summer Lovin’” from Grease, because we are having a summer party of ahava!

Guess which obscure Jewish holiday is on the horizon? If you answered Tisha B’Av, you’re wrong! Less than a week after that bummer day, is Tu B’Av, aka Jewish Valentine’s Day.

There are lots of beautiful Tu B’Av historical traditions, like women borrowing white dresses and dancing in vineyards to attract a spouse. In this day and age, we mostly just get awful singles’ parties.

And so, for the second year in a row, Jewcy presents a holiday alternative: Love Bites.

Jewcy is on a summer residency! To read this piece, and our others for July and August 2017, go to our big sister site, Tablet Magazine!
