You may not have heard of the holiday Tu B'Av (literally the 15th of the month of Av), but the Talmud tells us that Tu B'Av is considered the greatest holiday of the year with Yom Kippur a close second (Taanis 26b).
What is so special about Tu B'Av?
Tu B'Av has many important meanings, but during the Second Temple Period, Tu B'Av was a joyous matching making day for unmarried women. After many years of little observance, in modern times, especially in the State of Israel, Tu B'Av has become the "Jewish Love Day".
