A • ha • va
(Hebrew: אהבה, Love)
The root “ahav” means “to give.”
True ahava, true love, is more concerned about giving than receiving.

What Our Clients Say
“Tharani and Ahava Services did a wonderful job helping us transition from Filemaker Pro to Salesforce! Our system of tracking is extremely unique and required a lot of flexibility and adjustment to set things up exactly how we wanted, but the Ahava Services team took the time to understand exactly how we were using the database to make sure all of our needs were met. They are flexible, accurate, and extremely skilled at helping customers transition into using a new system.”
