Ok so sorry about that long hiatus, you see my dog ate my blogging material and so i needed about a week to come up with some new stuff. er uh kinda.

Well due to the naggings of Leo the T I've decided to post something about Tu B'av which is coming up this wednesday.

My question is why in all of my largely worthless Jewish education have I not learned a single thing about this magnificant day except from the blogosphere (well kinda). I suppose you'll say that it falls out during the summer and since we never had school then there was no time to learn about it. But lo and behold Tisha B'av is in the summer and through school, shul and camp I've managed to garner more than enough information about this very sad day.

So what about Tu'Bav? Do rabbis have something against meeting members of the opposite sex, probably. The response of course is to censor our knowledge of St. Valentines adventures with liberating those Beis Yaakovs (kinda).

Anyways I hereby declare the remainder of this week: Tu B'av Awareness Week. We must foster the fun back into judaism with lots of lustful coed events. Woohoo!

Interesting. As an educator, I'm curious-- how do you recommend that one celebrate Tu B'Av Awareness Week?

Hey, leave me out of this... I have nothing to do with their argument. Although seriously, that's a weird name.
