It turns out that Valentine's Day is called Yom HaAhava in Israel, i.e. Love Day.
And this year the 30th of Shvat happened to fall on February 14, so today is Family Day as well.
(30 Shvat is the yahrzeit of Henrietta Szold, founder of Hadassah Women.)
Dean and Eyal loved playing in this part of the Sculpture Garden. And why not? The letters spell ahava, Hebrew for LOVE.
Robert Indiana designed "Ahava" especially for the Israel Museum. The artist avoided his usual bold colors here because the sculpture is positioned in a way that makes it possible to sky-watch through the letters.
It is said that this angle alludes to the marriage of heaven and earth, with love.
I love how the big brother lovingly embraces his little brother, helping him down from the big sculpture.
Wishing you all a happy day filled with love.
