Nine cool Jews and Jewish businesses have donated $175 worth of gifts in celebration of “Tu B’Av,” a day on the Jewish calendar for sweethearts. In ancient times, Tu B’Av was celebrated by young single women dressing in white and shaking their groove things in vineyards; young men from all 12 tribes would sneak-a-peek, hoping to find their future wives. Today, you can celebrate in similar fashion — at parties rather than vineyards — on August 5th.
There are two ways to win the Cool Jew Love Day Gift Box:
(1) Enter to win at http://tinyurl.com/lovedaygiveaway by submitting your answer to this question:”What Do You Love About Being Jewish?” We’ll announce a winner online on August 5th!
(2) If you are in LA, celebrate at LoveFest 2009, organized by JConnectLA and featuring live performances by Moshav, Rav Shmuel, DJ Eric Rosen and more. One lucky guest will be chosen to win the Cool Jew Love Day Gift Box. Join LoveFest at 8 pm, August 5th, at the Bungalo Club in Los Angeles. CoolJewBook.com and ModernTribe.com are co-sponsors of this event! For more information, visitjconnectla.com.
