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)

I thought perhaps we could start a movement to bring back this very old, very dignified practice. Certainly, it is at least as authentic and Torah true as shaved heads, long curly peyos, cholent, and tefillah b'tzibur.

So... any takers?
