Jewish Valentine’s Day Cards

Yes, we know that Valentine’s Day is not a Jewish holiday, and in fact is technically derived from a saint’s day, but we still like to celebrate it. As stated in a discussion of Valentine’s Day and Judaism on My Jewish Learning, the desire to express love and to offer gifts to loved ones is in line with Jewish tradition and values. In fact, the idea of a special day to encourage coupledom is well-rooted in the Jewish tradition; Tu B’Av, the 15th day of the Jewish month of Av, was an ancient day of matchmaking.

Here are some fun ways to send a little Jewish along with your Valentine’s greetings.
