Love is in the Air

Wednesday, 28 July 2010

With the Tu B’Av (the Jewish equivalent of Valentine’s Day) having been observed this past week, Amy over at Homeshuling asked several of us in the Jewish parenting blogosphere to share our favourite Jewish love song.

There are a lot of choices and a lot of Jewish love songs that I really, really like.

But my hands down favourite is…

Mitachat LaShamayim (Under the Sky) — David Broza

I first heard this song my first month in Jerusalem. It was summertime. There was something so sensual about both the lyrics and music. It reminded me of Sting‘s Field of Gold. Which I heard him play that same year at Sultan’s Pool.

What about you? What’s your favourite Jewish love song?

      Thanks for including me. I love being asked to thing about things in a new way.

    I really enjoy David Broza- but the title of the song just reinforces that it is long past time for me to grow up. I see mitachat and start giggling at the thought of all sorts of silly jokes.

      OK — I just don’t see it. Of course, I never get that kind of stuff.

    I LOVE this song. I even have it on tape. And the cool thing about it is that eve with my weak Hebrew, I can understand some of it.
