I’ll admit, I had never heard of this holiday until just recently. It peaked my interest due to it being called the “Jewish Valentine’s Day”. According to the Talmud, single women would dress in white and dance in the vineyards on the 15th of Av and the eligible bachelors would join them…never a dull biblical moment.
The day also celebrates a variety of other events from intermarriage to burying the dead.
