Tradition! Tradition!

"There were no better days for the people of Israel than the Fifteenth of Av and Yom Kippur, since on these days the daughters of Jerusalem go out dressed in white and dance in the vineyards. What they were saying: Young man, consider who you choose (to be your wife)." (Taanit 4:8)
Apropos the discussion of WPGs and the so-called "traditional role of women," I thought perhaps we could start a movement to bring back this very old, very dignified practice.

Any takers?
