“I’m delighted to have author Avery Duran on my blog tonight, the eighth night of Hanukkah, to talk about her newest book, Ahava Is Love.
Ahava Is Love is a romance between an Israeli medic and an American real estate agent who is traveling in Israel to explore his heritage. The trip takes place in winter and happens to coincide with the eight days of Hanukkah.
Have you heard of Hanukkah, but never understood what it was about? It commemorates the rededication of the Jerusalem temple around 160 BCE, after a revolt against Greek rulers who had restricted Jewish religious practices. It happens every year in November or December and lasts eight days, and is marked by lighting candles with blessings each evening.”
