Tel Aviv to screen marriage proposals on City Hall building for Tu B’Av

(JTA) – Fifteen couples will have their marriage proposals screened on a side of Tel Aviv’s municipal building in honor of Tu B’Av, the “Jewish Valentine’s Day.” People can apply to have the text of their proposals screened against an illuminated “I Do” backdrop on the building on Aug. 15. Each proposal will be screened for 10 minutes. Tu B’Av, the 15th day of the Jewish calendar month of Av, was a matchmaking day for unmarried women in the Second Temple period. On that day, single Israelite women would go out in the fields dressed in white and danced before the young men, who selected their brides.
