Hundreds Renew Tradition of Dance in Shilo Vineyards

Hundreds of women went, Thursday evening, to the site of ancient Shilo in the Binyamin region to renew an ancient custom, which had been followed for hundreds of years, of dancing in the vineyards. It was from this tradition that the "love fest" of Tu B'Av, the 15th day of the month of Av, was born.

The women took part in dance workshops in a plaza overlooking the site of the ancient sanctuary. The evening finished with a performance by Mika Karni and Roni Dalomi.
