Inside Zedekiah's Cave

Israeli Singles Search for Love Underground

August 18, 2011 / Israel, Asia

An ancient stone quarry underneath Jerusalem’s Old City was recently the scene of a speed-dating marathon to mark the Jewish holiday of love, known in Hebrew as Tu B’Av.

60 Israeli singles were brought to 2000 year old quarry known as Zedekiah’s Cave late Sunday for the unique experience. The singles took their spots at candlelit white tables in the cave, which was once used as a source of the limestone when building the Old City.

The 5-acre site sits about 9 meters (30 feet) below street level of the Muslim Quarter, and is accessed via a natural opening under the Old City wall.
