Ahavah is a verb and a noun, it is an act of doing

The root word of Ahavah is “ahav.” The term ahav in Hebrew means, “to give.” True Ahavah, true love, is more concerned about giving than receiving. Being the center of someone’s attention isn’t love. And love isn’t about getting some feeling or fix. Ahavah is about giving devotion and time. Giving is the vehicle of love

The meaning of “Ahavah” is “I give” and also “I love!” We now see the connection between the two words – “I give” and “I love.” Love is giving…! Not only is love giving, but the actual process of giving develops the very connection between the giver and the receiver.
