A musical Tu Be’av

To celebrate Tu Be’av, the Israeli Valentine’s Day, the Beit Guvrin music festival will on August 7 host two of Israel’s most famous female pop singers at the Beit Guvrin amphitheater: Yuval Dayan, who rose to fame on “The Voice,” and Miri Mesika, who has won several female singer of the year awards in Israel. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets range from NIS 164 to NIS 184, with sitting and standing room options available. For more information and tickets, see

Retreat into love

If big crowds are not your style, the Desert Ashram’s series of love-themed retreats and workshops may catch your fancy. The Ashram, a spiritual and therapeutic center run by a “commune of desert dwellers and Osho meditators,” will host several events throughout August with amorous topics such as “Presence and Eros: A Transformative Weekend of Knowing the Body Wisdom” from August 17 to 19, and “From Fear to Love – Going beyond Sexual Conditioning” from August 22 to 26.

All events are to be held at the Ashram, south of Mitzpe Ramon. Tickets for events vary widely according to length and accommodation options and early-bird prices are available. For more information and reservations, see Fires, meat consumption and pets are prohibited.
