Today is the most important day of the year. It reminds us that before there can be Bat Mitzva’s, little league and fond memories, a man must marry a woman. Unfortunately, that seems to be harder every year. However, the 15th of Av is the day we remember that the Talmud in tractate Taanis recalls how the young women would borrow dresses and run in the fields and entice men to marry them.
Today’s daf eerily makes mention of the Heavenly voice which proclaims that a man is destined to marry a certain woman. Why is this so important. ? The answer is that there is someone for everyone. Hashem made the match. It is up to us to make sure the people come together. The work is for each and every person to always think of people and try to match them.
Let us pair up with Hashem in this heavenly work.
