The holiday began this evening and will end tomorrow evening (Aug. 16th), and it's all about love. I have read that, in the olde days, the daughters of Jerusalem would go out on this day to dance in the vineyards by the light of the full moon. And the sons of Jerusalem would also go to the vineyards to choose their brides. That's all supposed to be in the Talmud, but I don't know exactly where. If anybody knows, I'd appreciate your input!

I wish you all a very happy Tu b'Av!

Same to you my friend. The Safaria app for Tu b'Av has about 15 total entries. Pretty interesting reading material.

One of my favorites, I assumed it came from Benjamin almost being wiped out because dude split that concubine in pieces and sent her body parts to all Israel to show the heinous acts of Benjamin to a brethren traveler, wierd story.

Israel almost wiped Benjamin out and Israel had sworn not to give it's daughters to marry men of Benjamin, but the tribe had to be replinished.

Benjamin was almost wiped out and all the tribes had sworn not to let their daughters marry any man from Benjamin, and so the idea of taking brides from the spiritual gatherings of Israel was invented, the women were to be taken so that the fathers didn't break their word. It is the most romantic thing, really. Really a symbolic thing to me, about how the nation of Israel might take brides from the people who came up to celebrate holy days of Israel.
