Tu B’Av – Better Late than Never?

Immahlady tagged me in the Tu B’Av Love Song Meme and now that this little known Jewish Holiday is behind us and we are all in the midst of preparing for a very well-known one, I finally get this post from Draft to Published, finished or not.

For those, like myself, who were not aware of Tu B’Av; the 15th of Av, it is a Jewish “Love” day, interestingly coming less than a week after one of the saddest days in our calendar. Thank you to  Homeshuling for starting this challenge and bringing this chag more to the forefront.  I apologize for not continuing the tagging, but everyone else is in yontiv prep mode and I refuse to contribute to anyone else’s procrastination; I barely want to be responsible for my own!

So, after all that explanation, what is my favorite Jewish Love song?

I knew the answer before I finished the question… My Zeidy by Megama

The actual song starts at 1:20 after an introduction about Israel.

As you can tell by the title, it’s not about mushy love, or even a man and a woman, but rather the kind of love I hope my husband and I instill in our children and our children’s children…so that someday, when they are listening to it for the 100th time,  it still generates a tear.
