Tu B’av….the 15th of the month of Av. During ancient times, it marked the beginning of the grape harvest when unmarried girls would dress in white and dance in the fields. Today, it’s slowly evolving into the Israeli Valentine’s Day, a day of love to raise our spirits after the low of Tisha B’av.

Whether you’ve already found the love of your life or not, have a happy, love-filled day (with more luck than this dumb oleh).
