Heart for Tu Bav

The Balance of Tu B’Av

  Hope Chernak is the Director of Youth and Informal Education at Temple Shaaray Tefila. Today is Tu B’Av.  Did you know that? Tu B’Av it’s one of those Jewish Holidays that not everyone is familiar with since it falls over the summer.  In the past, if Valentine’s Day fell on one of our youth group nights (TaSTY Lounge Night), I would use the opportunity to talk about Tu B’Av with our teens so they had a chance to learn about this summer holiday (even in the dead of the winter!).  I always found it interesting that this holiday comes […]

By Matt Mandel, NFTY-NAR New York City Membership Vice President 2014-2015 A few days ago I was going about a regular day during my first week at the Union for Reform Judaism’s Kutz Camp. It was time for chuggim, or electives, so I looked at the Expo board in the dining hall and at the top of the list was a very intriguing choice called: “If you had the attention of the URJ President…” I hurried over because, initially, I thought Rabbi Rick Jacobs was leading the chug. To my slight dismay, I only found a few camp participants and […]
