Join the Chevra for the “Festival of Love”, in celebration of Tu’Bav. This in person event for young professionals will be taking place at The Foundry in Philadelphia, PA, and aims to bring people together as a community during the mystical Jewish holiday of Tu’Bav, “and bring a little bit of peace and love into the world during these turbulent times”.
More about Tu’Bav
Just as many tragic events occurred on Tisha B’Av (the 9th day of the Jewish month of Av) many
auspicious events transpired on Tu B’Av (the 15th day of Av). The Talmud tells us that many years ago the “daughters of Jerusalem would go dance in the vineyards” on the 15th of Av, and “whoever did not have a
wife would go there” to find himself a bride. The Talmud considered it the greatest festival of the year, with Yom Kippur a close second! As the “full moon” of the tragic month of Av, it is the festival of the future redemption and a day of reconciliation and unity. In modern times, it has become a festival of love and is often celebrated with live music & wedding celebrations.
