ABOUT THE WEEKEND
Tu B’Av, the 15th Day of Av on the Hebrew calendar, is an ancient holiday that has been modernized as the Jewish day of love similar to Valentine's Day in the United States. It originally served as a matchmaking day for unmarried women and was celebrated by women dressing in white and dancing.
Heart 2 Heart AZ is working in partnership with organizations and communities across the country, including Kavanah Life Singles and Rabbi Sam Intrator, to bring together a celebration of love, connection, and discovery August 15-18, 2019, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Hundreds of local and visiting Jewish singles of all ages and observance levels will enjoy a weekend of presentations from Rabbi Sam Intrator and other speakers on various topics of dating and relationships, as well as fun activities and socials designed for participants to get to know one another, and hopefully, develop connections.
This weekend also falls on Shabbat Nachamu, meaning the Shabbat of comfort, and it marks the Shabbat after Tisha B’Av. Nachamu is no ordinary Shabbat, and it is traditionally celebrated with an extra special Shabbat meal. This weekend has long been known by many singles as a special singles weekend and our unique program and location will make this singles Shabbat Nachamu different from any singles Shabbat Nachamu program ever held before.
We look forward to celebrating this joyful weekend with you and hope that you will take away new connections and discovery.
