Prof. Naomi Seidman—Tu be’Av: The Little-known Jewish Summer of Love (In person only)

August 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Program Fee: $12.00

Part of “LEHRHAUS ALEHOUSE” at Beer Baron in Rockridge. First drink is on us!

The Mishna speaks of Tu Be’Av, an ancient matchmaking festival, one that disappeared until the modern period, when it was revived in the Land of Israel and in the Orthodox world. On the holiday, great rabbis pray, without charge, for unmarried men and women to find their mates. But who revived this festival? Neither Zionists nor Orthodox rabbis. Join us to discuss the role of a divorced woman in interwar Poland in reshaping the festival (but only for adolescent girls) for her own day.

Sunday, August 18 @ 3–4:30pm, in-person only
