The Torah reading of Va’etchanan is always read in close proximity to the unique holiday of Tu B’Av – the 15th of Av, and it’s no wonder – both Va’etchanan and Tu B’Av speak of love: G-d’s love for Israel, our love for G-d ,our love for one another, and our love for eretz Yisrael – the land of Israel. Love makes it all possible.
Va’etchanan (Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11)
