Week 45 in the Song of Songs

7. Many waters cannot quench the love, nor can rivers flood it; should a man give all the property of his house for love, they would despise him.


Week 45 in the Jewish calendar is the week of Tu B’Av, the happiest (along with Yom Kippur) and most romantic day in the Jewish calendar. The verse of Shir HaShirim for this week speaks of unquenchable love, that rivers cannot flood. Even despite all the suffering endured in Tisha B'Av, we return; all the destruction in the world cannot quench our desire for Hashem. As Rashi notes, we are willing to give away everything for our love for G-d.
