Jewish Holidays

Yom Kippur, Tu B’Av, and Purim

The Gemara gives 6 reasons why Tu B’Av is celebrated. Many events have occurred that are greater than these. Why don’t these other events merit holidays as well? How can we make Tu B’Av meaningful for us today now that we don’t celebrate Tu B’Av the way that is described in the Gemara?  Shiur provided courtesy of Naaleh.com
