month of Ab Observed With Festive Atmosphere

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright 1975, JTA, Inc.)

The 15th day of the He-
brew month Ab is observed

relates that this day was a
very festive day in the pe-
riod of the Second Common-
wealth. Rabbi Simeon ben
Gamliel, who lived through
the fall of Bethar recalled
from his youth the kind of
festive atmosphere that
came over the people on this
day.
It was ranked in the same

category as Yom Kippur
when the goal of atonement
was achieved in the latter.
The daughters of Jerusalem
would go out in festive array
on both of these days. To
equalize their potential they
all wore borrowed clothes so
as not to embarrass the
poor.
A number of reasons are

offered in the Talmudic lit-
erature for characterizing
this day as such a festive
one. For one thing, deaths
due to the plague that en-
sued after the people dem-
onstrated their lack of faith
after they heard the report
of the scouts, ended on that
day.

Secondly, on that date
the tribes were finally al-
lowed to intermarry —
something that had not
been allowed previously
because of the concern
that the inheritance of the
individual members of the
tribes might be trans-
ferred out of the tribe into
another tribe.

Third, it was also on this
day that the guards that
had been stationed to prohi-

hit the people of the North-
ern Kingdom of Israel (re-
ferred to as Ephraim) from
going to the Temple in Jeru-
salem were finally removed.

The Talmud, besides giv-
ing other reasons (Baba
Bathra 121a), also includes
tile fact that the victims of
Bethar, who were pre-
viously denied the right to
burial by the wicked Ro-
mans, were finally allowed
burial privileges on this day.
In modern Israel some
kibutzim have tried to res-
tore this festival by calling
it "Chagigat hakeramim"
(the festival of the vine-
yards). In the Diaspora,
penitential prayers are
omitted from the liturgy on
this day.

In the days of the Temple,
this day was sometimes
called the day of the wood

This day was the one in
which the priests, Levites
and Jews who were not sure
of their tribal origins
brought their share of the
wood to the Temple.
