Originating Calendar
Religious Observances

Jewish holiday of love (similar to Valentines Day). It is a great day for weddings, commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows, or proposing. Begins at sundown on the first day and ends at nightfall on the final day. Jewish students or employees observing Tish'a B'Av may stay home from work during this period, and some may request schedule adjustments in order to observe.
