"August 16th"


Dear Doves,
 
I would like to pose a question.
 
For several years, the date August 16th has stuck in my mind.
 
I have tried to research it , and really find nothing of special note on that date in history.
 
Every year, as the date  approaches, I begin to wonder.
 
I have always felt it had something to do with Israel.
 
Recently, I have come to knowledge , ( thru Fivedoves.com ) that the celebration of Tu B' Av occurs around this time.  Thanks to all the Doves, for all the posts on this fascinating subject.
 
Does this August 16th , 2011 have a special meaning ?
 
This August 16th may come and go without incident, and I suppose I will go on wondering.
 
I wish I could get it off my mind, but every year, it starts again.
 
Watching, waiting, and trying to stay patient.........joechappell
