Love Rituals: In Israel
German author and presenter Charlotte Roche travels to Israel in search of love rituals and traditions. She encounters an age old belief that there is a soul mate for every person, somewhere in the world. You just have to find them. Every year at Tu Be´av hundreds of young Jews go on pilgrimage to receive a blessing in prayer to help quickly find the Bashert - the God-destined partner, the absolute soulmate. God "gave" or made available such a Bashert for every person before birth and it is the task of a religious Jew to find it as quickly as possible. Why? Because one of the highest Jewish principles is the foundation of a family.
