The Sky’s the Limit

One of he many reasons why we moved to Israel was the fact that there are many more opportunities here for Orthodox Jews. Where in the Diaspora you might think to yourself, a religious Jew can’t do THAT, here in Israel there are usually chances to fulfill yourself in many different avenues.

I saw an advertisement for just this kind of fulfillment. On Tu B’Av (the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Av) there will be a dance festival just for women in the ancient part of Shilo. Dance workshops, an outdoor cafe, and a dance performance are the main attractions. The time and place are also very symbolic, as Tu B’Av was the day that the young women would borrow dresses from each other (so that noone would know who was rich and who was poor) and dance in the grape orchards to attract a spouse.

I personally am not a dance person, but I know that there are many religious women who love to dance, and will welcome the opportunity to take part in workshops like these.
